If you want to do film and are already out in the cali area, why not just work on shoots? You can learn just as much if not more than you will in film school (i'd be happy to shoot you over a list of my old syllabuses and required readings/watchings) but with the added joy of not spending thousands a year (to my credit i went for my BA/BS for free basically so i figured might as well).
It's hard getting on a gig of paid shoots. Seems now these days all they want is a reel and resume. Does student work count to be put onto a resume? Ya I'll be happy to take a look at those syllabus.

What kind of work are you trying to get? PA work doesn't require a reel. If you're trying to get DP or operator (since you've listed yourself as an operator) work then they'd want a reel. It's very nearly impossible to get DP or operator work without professional experience. It shouldn't be too hard to get some work as a PA, especially if you're willing to work for free for a couple days.
