Vancouver Film School: Production, Animation, Game Design, Acting and more


At VFS, we measure the success of our programs by what our students, alumni, and respected members of the industry have to say about us. Here's a sample of what people are saying about the Acting for Film & Television experience at VFS.

I just remember telling myself to erase everything I had ever learned and to open up and absorb everything that was given to me... It was one of the best years of my life to date. I learned so much. I can't even begin to explain it. Because of VFS, I get to live my dream.

The best way, if you want to get into a community, is to go to a school, but especially a place like this, where there's other departments that you get to work with. These [students] are going to be working in the film business in town, and teachers... Our teachers are all professional people, and it's a great way to get your connections to know where you've got to go once you finish school.

Un Medico in Famiglia, Pope Pius XII

The year at VFS really helped me stretch my comfort zone and explore different sides of myself in the variety of scene work that we were given. You have to explore extreme opposites of who you are, and going through a program like the one VFS offers really prepares you for challenges like that.

It's such a great community to be a part of, because everyone comes out of VFS with the experience needed to do great work.

Men in Trees, For Your Security

I had come from a solid theatre and acting education. I understood and studied the history, theory, methods... It was nice to go into a program that helped fine-tune that for film and TV.

Battlestare Galactica, Fringe, Hellcats

That year and a half [in Acting for Film & Television and Acting Essentials] was probably the scariest time in my life... it was also the absolute best.

When one decides to be an actor, to tell stories, to essentially live terrifying and extraordinary experiences for an audience, how do they begin to train for such an undertaking? VFS honours the fact that acting is a craft. At VFS, a student will learn that their body, mind, and voice is an instrument; how to develop and use it. Training at VFS will be the integral beginning of a lifelong study!

I still love seeing the alumni and faculty at auditions, whether I'm auditioning or reading with them. We are all peers, and there to support each other in our triumphs and struggles.
