ALLEN PARK, Mich., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The highly successful proprietary school, Center for Film Studies, (CFS,) is pleased to announce they are moving to a 10,000 square foot facility within the Allen Park Studio Center, the film complex owned by the city of Allen Park.    

The Center for Film Studies has formed a training alliance with a film studio also on-site at the Allen Park Studio Center including Global Renaissance Entertainment, a nationally known movie production company who has secured commitments from some of Hollywood's most successful producers from movies such as, "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "300" and "Superman Returns" for a number of major films to be made at the new facility in the coming months. CFS has arranged the relationship with Global Renaissance to have them hire their qualified graduates for work on their films to be shot in Michigan.
