Interestingly, it is not USC, UCLA or any of the glamour schools who have the largest number of alumni creating celluloid dreams - it is LA City College. Statistics aside, it's also a hell of a lot cheaper to attend than most of the other schools mentioned.

Note however, that U.S. universities and colleges can be extremely expensive for non-residents and there are relatively few scholarships for international students in the media area.
