Student Testimonials

"Such a great school! I graduated from F.I.R.S.T. Institute in the Film program, and I loved my whole experience. I got a job in my field two weeks before I even graduated, and my teacher was there to help me every step of the way.”

“The staff and teachers are super friendly and helpful, and the courses are condensed, so you can expect to be out and applying for jobs in a relatively short time. They even offer assistance through the career development department. I highly recommend this school.”

“Going to this school was the best decision I've ever made. The attention to detail, the friendly staff, and the knowledge they have in this field of study is incredible. If you're thinking about joining one of the programs, I'd say do it."
