Best Film Schools in Latin America

Below is the list of best universities in Latin America ranked based on their research performance in Cinematography. A graph of 1.17K citations received by 1.73K academic papers made by 10 universities in Latin America was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and therefore prefers institutions researching arts through computer science.
