While some great stories may well go on to become Hollywood blockbusters, our focus is on the craft of storytelling. A story well told will find its place.
TheFilmSchool attracts students from all over the world with its exceptional experience, Seattle’s thriving creative culture, and booming indie film community. We are elevating the art of storytelling by training a new generation of screenwriters and filmmakers, and many of our graduates have gone on to success–starting film companies, making movies, winning awards and have signed with industry agents.
Our intensive courses cultivate individual voices and original stories while teaching excellence in dramatic writing. There is no other school like it in the world.
