Description: The Department of Film and Media offers a unique program that lets students learn from both sides of the camera on the premise that graduates should be versed in both the contexts and techniques of the medium. The Department integrates the practice of film and media with courses in history and criticism that range from Digital Media Theory to Hollywood Cinema to the Business of Media in Canada. Students learn digital design, scriptwriting, cinematography, directing, editing and sound recording and mixing for documentary, animation, multimedia, fiction and experimental production, while also studying the history and theory of cinema and media. They are exposed to media professionals, scholars and an extensive network of alumni. Film and Media is located within the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, with state-of the-art production facilities, a large screening room, and a Digital Lab.

Courses in Film and Media can be divided into three main categories: applied or production courses, such as Documentary Production, Animation Production, Screenwriting, or Video Production for Digital Media; courses in media and culture, such as Media and Popular Culture or Advertising and Consumer Culture; and courses in film and media criticism and history, including Hollywood: The Dream Factory or Creative Industries in the 21st Century.
