Pioneering. And always independent.
The 1st French school to provide training in VFX, ARTFX was founded in 2004 by a team of enthusiasts. The management and teaching teams, made up of professionals from the film, visual effects, animation and video game industries, maintain special relationships with studios and understand their needs perfectly. ARTFX is one of the only schools that is still independent, as it doesn’t belong to any private educational group. ARTFX is thus at complete liberty to make its own educational choices. And to keep its campuses a manageable size.
