The Cost of Shooting on Film

VCUarts Cinema is one of the only film schools in the world shooting 35mm film at the undergraduate level. We believe working with film instills in our students a physical and mechanical understanding of motion picture photography that is highly valuable and nearly impossible to replicate on a digital camera. VCUarts tuition covers all filmmaking expenses. The university pays for every aspect of the process, from film developing to actors’ fees.
