Located in Los Angeles, a city synonymous with artistic innovation and excellence, The School of Cinematic Arts will be the venue for the International Conference on Art and Technology 2016 in Los Angeles on 17th and 18th of November. The Faculty, that belongs to the University of Southern California (USC) is a Mediterranean Revival Style School, completed in 2010 by the USC’s Urban Design Group. The School of Cinematic Arts was the first university in the United States to offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in film and is considered to be the the top-ranked film, television, and interactive media school in the country. The school offers multiple undergraduate and graduate programs covering Animation & Digital Arts, Cinema & Media Studies, Interactive Media & Games or Media Arts among other programs.
On September 19, 2006, George Lucas donated US$175 million to expand the film school with new facilities. This represented the largest single donation to USC and the largest to any film school in the world. The main building is a four-story, 137,000-square-foot facility housing classrooms, production labs, and administrative offices, as well as a 200-seat theater, an exhibition hall, and a café situated off a central courtyard. Completed in 2010, the second phase of the project provides another 63,000 square feet of educational and production space in four buildings. The project received the Grand Prize at the 2011 Los Angeles Architectural Awards awarded the honor by the Los Angeles Building Council (LABC) in 2011.
The school is located at 900 W 34th Street in the West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles.
