"If documentaries are your thing, there’s hardly a better place than Stanford" - TheWrap

Stanford again named top documentary program in TheWrap's annual film school ranking

TheWrap has published it's list of Top 50 Film Schools for 2023, with Stanford ranking 15th overall. The report notes that "if documentaries are your thing, there’s hardly a better place than Stanford":

Every student is fully funded (including a housing stipend, which is about $12.5K this year) and makes three shorts their first year and one longer, 20-minute doc in the second year. Because of the small size, everyone’s a jack-of-all-trades, shooting, editing, producing, serving as crew. Notable alumni include Elizabeth Lo (“Stray”), Reid Davenport (“I Didn’t See You There”) and David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg (“Bill Nye: Science Guy”). Keep a lookout for recent grads Paloma Martinez, Elivia Shaw, Aurora Brachman, Michael Workman and Adrian Burrell, who all won major awards for their student films.
