The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has completed construction of its new ASC ARRI Education Center.

Located behind the historic ASC Clubhouse in Hollywood, the modern building now serves as a hub for the organisation’s ongoing efforts to educate the next generation of filmmakers on the art and craft of cinematography.

The educational centre is made possible through the support of ARRI, a manufacturer of camera and lighting technology for the motion picture and film industry.

The new 5,000-square-foot space consists of offices and a large meeting room.

In addition to being the home to all print and digital publications staff, the centre also houses an archive of historic “American Cinematographer” magazines for those wishing to research the art and craft of cinematography.

The official opening of the new structure coincides with the organization’s celebration of its 100th anniversary with members and sponsors.

“It is thrilling to see the educational commitment of the ASC solidified through this endeavor,” says ASC President Kees van Oostrum. “It’s also wonderful to be able to open this facility during our centennial party. For me, it manifests our mission for the next 100 years.”

ARRI has a longstanding relationship with the ASC and its membership. The
ASC and ARRI previously collaborated on the launch of the International Master
Class series, intensive workshops taking place around the world with acclaimed
ASC members.

Since 2019, ARRI has hosted various Los Angeles-based Master Classes and will continue to sponsor the International Master Classes for the next decade.
