“Taking IBTC Film and Design School’s Film Making course was a good experience and well worth the time and money. The modules were easy to follow, the instructors were very helpful and encouraging, and I really enjoyed working on the assignments. I especially enjoyed watching the clips from famous directors and cinematographers.”

IBTC Film and Design School is an exclusive design school with international mix of students from all around the africa. I am fond of Rwandan culture and language and wanted to study graphics, hence it was my best choice.
Since the number of students in each class is small, there is great amount of one to one interaction between students and teachers therefore students can take more advantage.
