Film School'd

Filmmakers make films. Films make filmmakers.

From blockbuster premieres to grindhouse theaters, late-night cable to the local video store – there is no greater classroom for aspiring filmmakers than cinema itself.

Join your host, Eric Skwarczynski, as he dives deep into the minds of legendary directors, producers, actors, and more to discover their biggest influences… and to explore the impact their films are leaving behind.

This is Film School'd.
