Gulf Islands Film and Television School




The Gulf Islands Film and Television School is a media production training facility on Galiano Island, BC. Accommodations are classic Gulf Islandesque: rustic, cozy, shared hostel-style rooms. Students live and work at the school in weekend, one-week, or month-long sessions. Sessions are organised by age group (12-14 yrs., 14-18, 18+) and genre (drama, documentary, etc.). GIFTS emphasizes independent production, hands-on training, and respect for the creative process.

We give our students confidence in their own creative vision and break down the technological and finanical barriers of media production.

A central feature of the GIFTS curriculum is our emphasis on helping students become media artists, not just cogs in a huge entertainment industry. Our focus is on independent, do-it-yourself rapid production. The result is an outpouring of creative energy and dedication that surprises nearly everyone who visits the facility or views our students’ movies. That’s why our students have such a good reputation in the industry: once they’ve been to GIFTS, they know how to work long, hard hours, how to trust their instincts and how to troubleshoot on a tight schedule. They leave here with a sense of independence and confidence that allows them to get to work on a project with clear goals.

The new media revolution is no longer hype. Desktop video is here, and we are the experts at small budget, independent production. However, the danger is the same as with desktop publishing: having the tools and the ability to operate them are not enough. Independent media producers must understand the importance of a good story well told, and have the ability to weave the technical together with the creative using limited resources. We make sure that students leave GIFTS with a kind of media savvy that can’t be obtained anywhere else in such a short time.
