Here's a secret that shouldn't be one: Scottsdale Community College boasts one of the strongest film programs in the state. And that's good news for local aspiring filmmakers.
From 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 4, the SCC Film School is hosting an open house at the campus, located at 9000 East Chaparral Road in Scottsdale.
Prospective movie makers can find out all sorts of info on the program, which offers degrees in motion picture and television as well as an opportunity to screen works at Harkins Theatre during the school's annual film festival.
It's free and open to everyone. Call 480-423-6076 or go to www.scottsdalecc.edu/filmschool.
