This Is My Year
This Is My Dream
Who am I going to be?
It's the most important question you will ever ask. Because this is a story about you, both the person you are today and the professional you dream about becoming. This is about transformation.
This Is My Story
No two dreams are the same
But sometimes, people from every background imaginable can unite under the banner of transformation. That's what this is all about - change with a purpose.
This Is My School
Ready for the most intense and creative year of your life?
This is the place to quit wondering and become the person you want to be. It's the place to get ready. That's been Vancouver Film School's story since 1987.

Vancouver is what you get when you combine awe-inspiring nature — snowcapped mountains, the Pacific Ocean, towering coastal rainforests — with one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan cities in the world. Vancouver's mild climate, safe atmosphere, and bustling downtown make it a destination for students seeking to live, create, and be inspired.

Vancouver is more than a good place to study — it's a great place to start your career. This is Hollywood North, where film and TV industries combine with a thriving community of visual effects studios, game developers, and cutting-edge design agencies.
