Why the Film Arts

Film Arts is an 3 year intensive, collaborative and comprehensive program for students wishing to work in film as actors, writers, or directors.

The development and inspiration for the Film Arts Program grew out of FAMU Theatre Arts/Studio 58 Program and its successful conservatory approach to training actors and production personnel in theatre.

Students collaborate on projects and engage in intensive study in their own craft area. Courses in film studies, industry practices, the principles and business of film production, and career preparation will give students in all streams the knowledge to embark on creative film careers.

Instructors are working professionals who bring their expertise and experience into the classroom. The Film Arts Program is for dedicated students committed to imaginative exploration and to honing and upgrading their skills and knowledge in film.

Students graduate with a high degree of proficiency in their chosen stream and are equipped with a wide range of knowledge and practical skills to ensure success.
