Ghetto Film School

Ghetto Film School (GFS) is widely celebrated for amplifying quiet but groundbreaking voices.  Developing filmmakers through personalized curricula, GFS emphasizes the importance of story.  Its programs currently serve students and alumni ages 17 to 30, providing education, training, professional development and job placement without a price tag.

Chiefly, Time Warner Foundation’s support of GFS Exposure increases diversity in the creative sector’s workforce.  By servicing over 200 GFS alumni with advanced technical training and connecting current students with Foundation-funded resources, Ghetto Film School builds a bridge between industry hopefuls and established storytellers of all backgrounds.  Through GFS Exposure, Associates are also paired with established mentors, demonstrating the program’s attention to each unique voice and commitment to tailored experiences.

Time Warner Foundation has been a proud supporter of GFS and its commitment to elevate art by making film education accessible to young people who may have otherwise been unable to afford it. The grant supports workshops, technical training, professional seminars, education programs, and career placement initiatives through GFS.
