“The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don’t know how to be submissive, and so on — because they’re dysfunctional to the institutions.”
– Noam Chomsky
The 85,000 square foot campus features separate film and television soundstages, two theatres, permanent sets, digital classrooms, editing suites, a casting room, and many shooting-friendly areas available for student productions. Unleashing student potential is the principal goal at CCH. Learning filmmaking as a true language of expression takes time, patience, a rich and encouraging environment, and the freedom to experiment and take risks. Columbia College Hollywood offers all that – and more.
