NOT YOUR AVERAGE FILM SCHOOL
12 PROJECTS IN 12 MONTHS
The best way to learn film making 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.
TRAINING BY FILMMAKING EXPERTS
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!
THE FILM INDUSTRY NEEDS YOU
Learning film production in Vancouver means you’ll enter the Canadian film industry which provides over 65,000 jobs and $4 billion in annual spending in B.C. alone. Whether you’re into directing, cinematography, or something else, the Film Production Program gives you a taste of all the positions on a film set and allows you to specialize in the role you want to pursue in the future.
