is a highly personalized two-year program designed for students who have either a Bachelor’s degree in Cinema or Fine Arts or who have had professional experience in the film or audio-visual media industry. The program is also open to all students having successfully completed a BFA or MFA degree in other disciplines but have a serious interest in pursing a career in the cinema, television and audiovisual industries.
This program is designed to give the student a thorough understanding of the aesthetic and technical aspects of filmmaking, with a second year of specialization in Producing where concentration is placed toward the student’s third term project.
The International Department’s MFA is an intensive two-year program concentrating on single camera fiction filmmaking with supplementary workshop.
Although we encourage specialization in later year of the MFA degree programs, we believe that students must have a well-rounded understanding of all aspects of the filmmaking process.
The student will distinguish and develop for their fiction cinema project, the techniques implied in each of the following specializations: producing, cinematography, directing, screenwriting and editing.
This first year gives the students the opportunity to discover and experience a wide array of filmmaking disciplines before they choose and commit to the Producing major.
Students complete the cycle with a second year of specialization where concentration is placed on the third term project that is be oriented toward the Producing major.
Students with a Major in Production are also required to produce a minimum of 3 student productions in their final 3rd term. During the second term, in addition to the required MFA courses, students will have a series of specialized workshops, and intense one-to-one tutoring with professional producers.
The Master of Fine Arts with a major in Producing aims to give students professional preparation for a career as a Producer in film, television and digital media.
