What good film schools are there in Canada?

Internet Filmmakers' FAQ

There are a large number of institutions which now offer film courses in Canada. For the full list, see filmmaking.net's film school database. Suggested starting points include:

Also have a look at Vancouver Film School, which runs both courses in film and television production, and professional 3-D computer animation. They also run many specialised part-time and short courses in all areas of film and television production, and also for actors in these media.

Vancouver Film School
400-1168 Hamilton Street

Another recommendation is the Niagara College of Applied Arts and Technologies (Ontario). This school has an excellent three year media course which covers film, television, and radio production, and has very strong practical components.

I'm surprised NSCAD University isn't mentioned here. It's the most exciting film program in Canada right now, with large cash scholarships given towards thesis films, and state of the art facilities. Very high quality work is being produced here. It's a super intensive hands on studio based program.
