Current Students

The courses in the Department of Cinema nurture and develop a student’s creativity and artistic expression.

Students create original films in a variety of genres including narrative, documentary, experimental, and animation. These films are regularly shown in student film screenings at the University and film festivals with a competitive selection process. Film studies courses that explore film history, theory and analysis sharpen students’ analytical abilities where they write papers that critically examine film as a form of art and commercial culture.

Here are the stories of some of our current students that talk about how these courses have developed their abilities to make films and analyze them. Click on the links below for the students to view films that they have produced in Cinema classes.
