Yavapai College is pleased to announce that the former Zaki Gordon Institute for Independent Filmmaking (ZGI) is officially becoming the Sedona Film School at Yavapai College. This re-branding of the school’s film program represents Yavapai College’s strong commitment to the community of Sedona and supports Sedona’s dedication to be a city animated by the arts.
The beginning of a new era in independent film in Northern Arizona, this year enrollment is at its highest level since Yavapai College first opened a boot-camp like film school in 2000: It has more than doubled for the fall semester. Under the leadership of Sedona Film School Director, Rue, they are expanding their programs both in scope and reach. There is a new focus on job placement and enhanced instruction.
