I assume you wish to study to become a filmmaker, not a student of films
study or film theory.

If so, there is plenty of information re: film school on the internet
including,  an internet film school ( http://hollywoodu.com/ ), where one
can take classes on-line.

However, my advice would be to forgo the whole "film school" experience. If
you wish you become a filmmaker, go make films!

 I wholeheartedly endorse the apprentice system of interning, p.a.'ing, etc.
etc.  I have found that often there is much more to be said professionally
for those who have had a liberal arts education (or no college education)
and practical experience over film school "geeks." For that matter, just get
a camera and start shooting, make a lot of mistakes, and find a mentor.


Best of luck
David
