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


VFS faculty members are working professionals whose dedication to teaching stems from direct experience as artists and designers. Their expertise provides students valuable insight to the creative process. We are deeply committed to the premise that creativity is a result of research, dynamic thinking, and willingness to experiment. Unlocking creativity comes from developing a complex understanding of your environment, permitting it to enter you, transform you, and re-emerge in the form of new perspectives, ideas, and intuition.
