| Loyola Marymount University's
film school among top 10 in US
LOS ANGELES (CNS) — Loyola Marymount University's School of Film and Television has landed in the ninth spot on The Hollywood Reporter's recently released list of "Top 25 Film Schools of 2013."
It was the editors' third annual film school rankings, based on ratings from "industry insiders."
The university in announcing its film school's ranking said that it earned inclusion in the list because of its growing animation program, internship and post-graduate programs, as well as for its alumni, who include James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli.
The school's faculty specializes in topics including ethics and social issues in film, video gaming, animation, documentaries and comedy screenwriting.
According to a press release, movie industry moguls helped establish Loyola Marymount University's current campus on the bluffs above west Los Angeles in the 1920s. Since 1964, Loyola Marymount has had a formal film and television curriculum. The School of Film and Television was established in 2001 as its own entity.
