Film & video students shoot and edit short films. Film assignments may include documentary, narrative, or both. Students work in groups and can expect to learn about the various roles on a film set (director, editor, grip, props, etc.) The student films are screened in a public exhibition. Class discussions and film screenings may contain mature subject matter. Up to 20 students are accepted.

Video Submission Guidelines
What To Expect During Your Zoom Interview
The film & video Zoom interviewer is not a judge. They will ask you questions to gain an understanding of your filming process, inspiration, and techniques in order to better inform the judges who will score your work. (e.g. How would you describe your film? What kind of equipment did you use? What challenges did you confront?)
