At Columbia College Hollywood we’re proud that every student gets multiple chances to shoot films and other projects as they progress towards earning their degree. We believe that shooting a film is a requirement not a privilege. Most students shoot several short films prior to shooting a thesis film as their culmination project towards their BFA degree. Unlike other film schools, CCH does not limit the number of films you can make each year.
Our students send their films to many U.S. and international film festivals, frequently winning awards. Also, each year ten of the best short films made at the College are also presented to the entertainment industry at our own CCH Film Festival for the Entertainment Industry.
Here are three short films produced and directed by our students, along with a compilation reel of images of various student films made over the last few years. We hope you enjoy what you see.
