Concordia University has one of the best filmmaking programs out there. And it's in Canada's best city. For Toronto, I hear Ryerson is pretty good.

Can you give more info about this school, and share your opinion on this school(if you know anything about their equipment and facilities). I'm looking for a decent film school in Toronto, but unfortunately live in russia and can't visit schools right now. My focus is cinematography and camera department, especially digital equipment like RED, ALEXA etc.

il try asking him about the equipments for sure and all about the camera department
i have the exact similar goal of yours, and even i want to pursue cinematography but the thing is this school provides an over all view over film production and and has a little special side over cinematography over different semesters.
what I'll do is I'll send u an email id of this person who deals with foreign recruitment and maybe he can clear all your doubts .
email-
"Greg Murphy" <gmurphy@yorkvilleu.ca> |

Ps : do share the conversation with me too
thx

The best thing for any prospective student to do is to contact each school directly. Asking for specific advice from a forum won't necessarily get you all the information you need. Look through each school's website first, then contact those that seem to be relevant to what you're looking for. Ask LOTS of questions because any school will try to sell you on why they are the best choice even if they are not. Don't stop there... ask about alumni and try to contact some of them. Once you've whittled the list down, actually go and visit the schools and try to talk to current students about their experience.

Remember, YOU are the customer and are paying for a service. It's important that you are getting the "product" that you're paying for so it's up to you to do the homework to find out first what's best before you make any decisions that will cost you in money and time.
