How wonderful that you're pursuing your passion for filmmaking at an HBCU! Howard University is renowned for its film program, offering state-of-the-art facilities and strong industry networks, which could be pivotal in your filmmaking journey. Their alumni network is impressive and includes notable figures in the industry, such as the late Chadwick Boseman, which could lead to valuable connections for internships and jobs post-graduation.

Another institution to consider is Morehouse College, which has fostered a robust environment for students interested in the arts and media. Before applying to either one, however, I'd recommend reaching out to the faculty of these programs or even trying to connect with current students or alumni to get a better feel for the community and opportunities available.

Being proactive in your research will help you find the HBCU that aligns best with your goals and interests. Best of luck in your application process!
