Ohio Film Colleges

Ohio has several film schools.

Ohio may not be home to any cinematic meccas like Hollywood or New York, but it does have several ties to Tinsel Town. Many notable movies including “A Christmas Story,” “The Shawshank Redemption,” “Men In Black” and “Spider-Man 3” were filmed on location in Ohio. If you plan to pursue an education in film, the Buckeye State offers several options.
