17) What are film school requirements?

Each film school will vary in requirements. Some schools only require you have a high school diploma or GED others may have a much more difficult application process.

For some of the major universities you will first need to have good enough grades to get into the school itself and then a intensive writing application process - a critical essay, personal statement, creative writing, etc. They're looking for storytellers.

Most schools require that you have a portfolio of your best creative work. This can include short stories, scripts, essays etc. This is probably given the most weight in terms of admissions to the film school.

If you are a International student applying to a American film school you will need a F-1 Visa.
