INTENSE FILM TRAINING
Cameras out from day one. Over 1000 hours of rigorous training. Mentorship from actively working filmmakers and industry professionals. Welcome to our Film Production Program.
We believe in learning by doing. Interactive lessons and 12 film projects in a broad range of filmmaking styles will give you an understanding of the technical and theoretical aspects of dramatic, biographical, and experimental film production. Learn how to become a filmmaker by making films, solidify your knowledge in real-life settings, and build your artistic strength and awareness through real experience.
Small class sizes provide focused, individualized training and plenty of one-on-one time with industry-professional instructors. Become a creative, artistic, and technically skilled filmmaker and join our award-winning alumni with a record of festival selections, awards, and employment after graduation.

NOT YOUR AVERAGE FILM SCHOOL
12 MONTHS. 12 PROJECTS.
The best way to learn is through hands-on experience. That’s why we maximize the amount of time you spend actually making films. Creating and finishing multiple projects enables you to experiment, make mistakes, and gain experience in a variety of roles in a way that isn’t possible with only a single capstone project.
LEARN FROM INDUSTRY PROS
Your mentors in the Film Production Program are all industry pros, meaning they are actively working directors, cinematographers, and editors. Not only does this provide the most up-to-date instruction on the techniques and state of the film industry, but it also provides networking opportunities, references, and job opening intel, right in the classroom!
CHOOSE YOUR SPECIALTY
Learning film production in Canada means you’ll enter the local BC film industry which provides over 65,000 jobs and $4 billion in annual spending. The Film Production Program gives you a taste of many of the positions on a film set and allows you to specialize in the role you want to pursue in the future.
