Pioneering and ever independent school
ARTFX was founded in 2004 by a team of enthusiastic professionals as the 1st French school to provide training in VFX. The management and teaching teams are made up of professionals from the film, visual effects, animation and video game industries. They entertain special relationships with studios and understand their recruitment needs perfectly. ARTFX is among the few schools that are still independent, as it doesn’t belong to any private educational group. ARTFX is therefore completely free to make its own educational choices. This allows the school to maintain the manageable size of its campuses.
ARTFX students’ graduation projects have been nominated in nearly 1,100 international festivals.They have received 2 awards at the VES Awards (in 2019 and 2022) and 3 Genie Awards for best student film (2018, 2021 and 2022) at the Paris Images Digital Summit (PIDS).
