O.k. To really say it briefly... Universities more of the academic, but not
Film schools hustle you to fit into the machine quickly, but may not care
 ultimately so long as you are crammed into some niche or other.
Film schools (Like VFS) have industry people teaching, but you may not get full
 ratio of all experiences... Universities (Like UBC ) have more acadmics at the
 helm, but possibly more time to experience the gamut of production. Hopefully.
I'd do a fair but of asking before deciding
How's that
