Campus Tours

Our AFI Conservatory campus tours consist of an overview of our Master's film school programs. Guests get to see the facilities and get a better understanding of the six disciplines and what it offers to prospective candidates who are interested in Cinematography, Directing, Editing, Producing, Production Design and Screenwriting. If you are interested specifically in the American Film Institute and their programs, please visit and contact our main phone number at 323.856.7740.
