Playa Vista Campus


In the fall of 2018, SFTV opened the doors of the Playa Vista Campus (PVC) at The Brickyard in Silicon Beach. PVC is home to  the SFTV Graduate program but is open to all SFTV students. The new building increased SFTV’s post production facilities by 50% and provides many common spaces for student collaboration and specialized spaces for filming. 

SFTV students can reserve post production spaces, hold rehearsals, and film throughout the 2nd Floor as well as in the nearby Playa Vista community parks and recreation spaces. Be sure to click on the links below for more information!
