Our Campus

Founded in 2005, the San Francisco Film School is located in heart of one of the most vibrant and creative cities in the world. In 2016, we moved into a brand new state-of-the-art facility located in downtown San Francisco at 155 Sansome Street. The historic Art Deco building was formerly the San Francisco Stock Exchange and is home to the prestigious San Francisco City Club.

Our campus boasts editing classrooms, sound stage with green screen, and a movie screening room – all designed to provide the best teaching experience possible. Easy accessible by all forms of public transportation (BART, MUNI), our new campus is surrounded by movie theaters, art galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and more.
