Succeed As A Film Actor!
Accelerated BA and MFA Degrees!
Tuition Grants Available!
Seattle Film Institute (SFI) is proud to announce that the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) has approved the school’s Acting in Film concentration as an addition to both SFI’s Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Film Program, and its Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Filmmaking and Producing Program. SFI is the only school offering this baccalaureate and graduate curriculum in the Pacific Northwest region. SFI’s programs provide an accelerated pathway to a BA or MFA degree.
The Seattle Film Institute Acting for Film Program provides thorough, rigorous training designed to develop the student's individual talent and provide the tools, experience and discipline necessary for a successful film acting career.
Through an integrated, project-based curriculum, students expand their emotional range and achieve the ability to communicate truthfully within a scene. Over the course of the program, students acquire the real-world experience and professional technique needed to perform at the highest artistic level while negotiating the technical demands and logistical concerns of a film shoot.
While still enrolled as a student in the Acting for Film Program at SFI Brian “Stewie” Giron was cast in Better Than Love, a Hollywood production shot in the Seattle area. “This was my first professional audition,” Stewie says. “I was actually more excited than nervous. The work we did in the program gave me the confidence I needed — I knew what to expect and how to handle myself. I focused on the reading, using the skills I developed at SFI. The reading went great and getting cast for the first time in a professional film is phenomenal.”
Accelerated BA Option
Students who come to SFI with an Associate of Arts Transfer Degree (or its equivalent) earn a BA in Film with a Concentration in Acting For Film immediately upon successful completion of SFI’s 50 week program.
Students without an Associate of Arts Transfer Degree (or its equivalent) receive a certificate from Seattle Film Institute upon successful completion of the program. This certificate recognizes and acknowledges that the student has earned 90 college-level credits at Seattle Film Institute. Students who wish to continue their education after receiving the certificate can complete their general education credits and electives at the accredited community college, college, or university of their choice (either on-campus or online). Upon completion of these credits, students receive a BA in Film with a Concentration in Acting For Film from SFI.
Accelerated MFA Option
Students who already have their Bachelors Degree can take the SFI Acting For Film Program as year 1 of the two-year MFA in Filmmaking and Producing Program. In year 2 students take the Producing for Film curriculum which gives them the ability to take charge of their careers and initiate, coordinate, supervise and control all the aspects of a film production including creative, business, management, and marketing, distribution and sales. Students graduate with a Master of Fine Arts in Filmmaking and Producing with a Concentration in Acting For Film.
