Toronto Film School understands that aspiring writers are looking for educational opportunities that are both skills-oriented and industry-based. That’s why their Writing for Film & TV diploma program teaches both the creative and business sides of writing, with assignments based on real-world challenges.

Here’s what you can expect: an 18-month, on-campus program modelled on industry writing rooms. You’ll learn how to turn your ideas into saleable, commercial formats ready for production. You will graduate with a portfolio of work for prospective employers, and with the knowledge you need to fill any number of creative roles, including: Screenwriter, Story Editor, Editor, Production Executive, Studio Executive, Producer, Director and Staff Writer.

Bachelor of Creative Arts degree pathway

A creative diploma from Toronto Film School qualifies you for entry into Yorkville University’s Bachelor of Creative Arts (BCA) degree program, which can be completed in as few as 15 months. The BCA is designed to round out your education by teaching you the practical business and leadership skills you need for a successful career in the creative arts. With this degree, you will then be eligible to apply to Canada’s Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP), where you can obtain a work permit valid for up to 3 years.

Toronto Film School is in CourseCompare's top film schools, even if it's #10. It's also in the Princeton Review's ranking. I recently stated at TFS in film production and applied to VFS but wanted to stay close to home. I also looked at Ryerson and York but I was looking for something that's hands-on and experiential and not theory/film studies liberal arts type classes. So far so good! I'm meeting great students and getting intros to industry people even during this awful pandemic.

For me, the benefits were an accelerated course load and one on one time with great teachers. It was exactly what I was looking for because I didn't want to waste time doing a four-year degree then transitioning from school to a real job. Be prepared to work hard on your portfolio (goes without saying). Other benefits: The school is big on peer support and networking, and it will help you understand the industry and where you fit into the puzzle. For game design and development, I recommend!
