"When you go to the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, you become a lifelong member and participate in a very unique tradition. Family. One that proudly claims some of the world’s most legendary storytellers, scholars, industry leaders, mavericks and creative minds. I remember well the influences on me as a student, greats like Arthur Ripley, Dorothy Arzner and Alexander Mackendrick. Upon graduation you will join this great heritage as you pursue your career. Being part of our remarkable Alumni community is an exciting experience.”
— Francis Ford Coppola MFA ’67
