All School of Film/Video Facilities are Closed Until Further Notice

CalArts has cancelled all classes and in-person activities beginning, Wednesday, March 11 through Sunday, March 22. This is a precautionary measure. There are no cases of COVID-19 at CalArts. 

During the suspension of classes, faculty and staff will prepare the Institute for remote instruction beginning Monday March 23. From 5pm March 11, students will not have access to the F/V Facilities. With this in mind, Film/Video faculty will make some adjustments to project deadlines and expectations. These details are not yet worked out, but will be soon. Please keep checking your email for information.

F/V facilities will be closed to students until further notice. This includes:

  • Computer labs
  • Classrooms
  • Production studios/shooting stages
  • Student cubicles & studios
  • Butler Buildings
  • The Palace
  • Cage & other equipment check out areas
  • Sound and post-production spaces

We understand this is very challenging for students, especially those who depend on the F/V facilities to do your work. This decision was not reached lightly and is an emergency measure to prevent possible spread of the coronavirus.

We’ll continue to update F/V students, faculty and staff as things develop. Thank you very much for your patience and help in keeping our community healthy and safe.
