New Joint Film School in Shanghai
Shanghai University and the Vancouver Film School (VFS) this week opened a new joint film school located at the Yanchang Campus of Shanghai University. The joint school will focus on film and post-production, with curriculum based on courses from VFS. Most of the staff will come from North America to teach and will include Oscar and Emmy award winners. Around 100 Chinese and international students are expected to enrol in the first cohort of students this autumn, with numbers expected to increase to 1000 over the next decade.
