Introducing our newest class, Martin Scorsese Teaches Filmmaking.
Before he was the Oscar-winning director of Goodfellas, Raging Bull, and Taxi Driver, Martin Scorsese was just a kid from New York who spent a lot of time at the movies. A lifetime of watching great films inspired him to make some of America’s greatest films. Now he’s bringing you into his world to share his insights into the history of film and filmmaking.
With a career that spans more than fifty years, Scorsese is one of the most influential and revered filmmakers working today. In 1990, he started The Film Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to film preservation and restoration. The Foundation’s preservation, education, and exhibition programs have helped raise awareness about the importance of film preservation, and in the process has saved over 750 films. Scorsese’s passion is renowned and his directorial achievements have received numerous awards, including: Academy Award, Palme d’Or, Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe, BAFTA, DGA, Silver Lion. In addition, Scorsese has received awards for lifetime achievement from the AFI, BAFTA, DGA, and many more.

“I was excited by this project because it gave me a chance to pass down my own inspirations and experiences and practices and evolutions, not as a blueprint for how to make movies but as a guidepost, an offering to young people attempting to find their own way. It was so important for me to have people that passed down their own knowledge when I was young, and MasterClass has given me an opportunity to try it myself.” —Martin Scorsese
“Scorsese is one of the most influential filmmakers of all-time, but he’s also an eternal student. What makes him such a great teacher isn’t just his mastery, but his love of learning. This is a once in a generation opportunity.” —David Rogier, CEO and Co-Founder of MasterClass
