Hi, I saw your message on the list.  I'm beginning to look at film
schools myself, so I'm not really in any better position than you are,
but I've been here in Canada for the past year, and know of several
people who think that Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (now University?)
has the best film school in Canada.  It's also got the advantage of being
located in downtown Toronto, which is a city that hosts a growing major
film industry, I think the 3rd largest of North America.  You might check
it out.  Also, tuition here is relatively cheap, even for an American!
Good luck...
