Imagine being a part of the Hollywood industry, instead of just hearing about it. The L.A. Film Studies Center is launching a SUMMER GRADUATE INSTITUTE (SGI) for filmmakers who want an immersive experience while taking their work to a deeper level. SGI is an intensive 4-week, 6-credit summer program designed to offer graduate students insights and experiences in the film business in a Christ-centered academic community.

SGI puts you inside the industry with an internship at the intersection of your interests, as well as behind the camera producing professional projects on location and in the studio. Working alongside industry leaders, both in the office and on the set, storytellers are given a bridge to move from passion to profession.
