In its recent roundup of top American film schools, The Hollywood Reporter recognized Purchase for affordability, proximity to New York City, and successful alumni.

“The Film and Media Studies program offers B.A. and BFA degrees, as well as minors in screenwriting, television theory, and playwriting, and has graduated Oscar winners like editor Tom Cross. After learning the basics of production, students choose a specialization in narrative, documentary or experimental film.”

They highlight Purchase as an option for prospective debt-conscious filmmakers in the “Alternative New York and California Film Schools” section.

“Student loan debt is an ever-increasing concern as tuition costs continue to rise. And for an impacted industry like entertainment with uncertain employment prospects, the cost can give many would-be filmmakers increased anxiety. With this in mind, THR has compiled a list of state and community college programs in or near entertainment hubs of Los Angeles and New York City.”
