To comprehend VFS, you might think of any major entertainment conglomerate that creates content across a range of industries. VFS functions like a major studio, with multiple production facilities that are essential for creating content for film, TV, games, animation, design, digital applications, and more. Content creation is our core learning tool.

We place our education in outstanding facilities with master instructors and mentors, and we regularly update and realign curriculum to be in lockstep with the most current industry standards. This is all to help students originate, produce, and exhibit their best possible creative and technical work.

From an education perspective, we are unassailable. Our one-year programs go deep and are immersive, efficient, and transformational. This is no accident. We have an inspired education department - expert at curriculum design and preparing industry specialists to be effective instructors. In this, we stand alone.

The role that connections play in a successful career cannot be overstressed. But it doesn’t have to be work, work, work. We believe in promoting school-wide opportunities for connections through being creative and having fun.

VFS is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver - named one of the world's best cities, year after year. Surrounded by some of the last remaining temperate wilderness in the world, Vancouver's natural beauty and cosmopolitan environment combine to make it an ideal place to study.
