Rutgers Filmmaking Center has been ranked #7 among public institutions (and #27 overall) in TheWrap’s annual list of the top 50 film schools. The program was lauded for its intimate size, exciting new courses, and its proximity to New York City:
“One of the jewels of the Rutgers film program is its Documentary Film Lab, which gives students the chance to make full-length, festival-worthy docs and is led by Academy Award-winner Thomas Lennon…” wrote TheWrap. “… Mason Gross is building a VR studio/lab and developing such courses as ‘New Technologies in Cinema’ and ‘Community-Engaged Filmmaking.’ Rutgers students also benefit from its proximity to NYC…as well as a growing studio presence in the Garden State, highlighted by Lionsgate‘s complex in Newark and Netflix’s Fort Monmouth studio.”
