Mission & Strategy

To nurture creative, bold, and meaningful work by new generations of filmmakers and scholars, based on a curriculum enlivened by, and relevant to, the continuous changes in our field.
We offer degrees in three areas. In Cinema and Media Studies, students study cinema and media through a variety of historical, critical and theoretical perspectives. In Production, students work with state-of-the art facilities to make films and develop specialized skills in directing, cinematography, editing, sound, and production management. In Screenwriting, students explore the craft of moving-image storytelling in the only degree-granting screenwriting program in Canada. Our studio courses seek to nurture films and screenplays that are committed to richness of content, creative vitality and mastery of technique. Our studies courses offer a challenging critical and interdisciplinary perception of the world we live in through its cinema. All three areas benefit from the engagement with one another that is the unique strength of our department.
