Proud Bruin Family

As a TFT alumnus, you’re part of a creative community that values connection. You’ve come from a place where bonds are formed and relationships made, creating longstanding friendships and professional collaborations.
Once a Bruin, always a Bruin.

When you go to the UCLA School of Theater, Film & Television, you become a lifelong member and participate in a very unique tradition.

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.”
