The following is a list of film schools grouped by country. Around the world, there are institutions both public and private dedicated to teaching film either as a department in a larger university, or as a stand-alone entity. There is also a distinction between film programs in existing private colleges and art schools, and purely for-profit institutions. The popularity of film and television production courses has exponentially increased since the 1980s and there are now more than 1,200 known institutions offering such courses around the world.
