What will I learn?

The Department of Theatre and Film offers a three-year BA in film production designed to train students in the art of narrative filmmaking. The program combines in-depth technical instruction with an examination of the creative aspects of film as a medium of storytelling and self-expression.

The BA in Film offers a broad curriculum in all aspects of filmmaking, including courses in scriptwriting, directing, producing and editing. Students gain hands-on experience writing and directing films and crewing on each other's projects. Small class sizes allow for one-on-one attention by our faculty of working professionals.

The program complements the technical aspects of film with courses in Cinema Studies, developing our students’ ability to not only create images and cinematic narratives, but also to gain an understanding of the historical, social and theoretical framework in which they are formed.

Also, the Film Program enjoys a close relationship with the Theatre Program – they are housed together in the As per Centre for Theatre and Film, located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. With close proximity to the Exchange District, the Forks and Osborne Village, the Film Program offers a stimulating and creative environment for student filmmakers.
