     The Cinema School (TCS)

    The Cinema School (TCS) is the nation’s first film high school – a selective academic public high school offering a rigorous liberal arts curriculum that is grounded in creative activity. TCS prepares students for the best colleges by challenging them to achieve new levels of understanding – of themselves and the world – through the art of filmmaking.

    TCS’ well-rounded academic program lays a strong foundation for success in any field while simultaneously empowering the voices, creative visions and aspirations of our students.

    The founding partner of The Cinema School is the non-profit Ghetto Film School (GFS), an award winning non-profit independent film organization based in the South Bronx. After a 4-year planning process, GFS opened TCS in partnership with the NYC Department of Education in September 2009

    TCS IN THE NEWS


    Education News The Frick Collection and the Ghetto Film School announce The Frick Film Project, a pilot collaboration between the Bronx-based independent film organization and the celebrated museum. The initiative provides onsite education across two creative disciplines, the fine arts and the cinematic arts. Over the last year, honor students from The Cinema School — the nation’s first and only high school devoted to film making, founded by GFS in partnership with the New York City Department of Education — participated in seminars led by the Frick’s Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator Xavier F. Salomon. The seminars focused on the concept of narrative in the works of art in the museum’s collection and encouraged the students to consider the visual arts in relation to their own storytelling and filmmaking. The program culminated with the creation of a student-produced short film inspired by the Frick and filmed on location at the museum. This year’s inaugural film, written by senior Gabby Martinez, entitled The Progress of Love, is loosely based on the series of works of the same name by the eighteenth-century French artist Jean-Honoré Fragonard.
