The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Film with a concentration in filmmaking will expose you to working photographers, filmmakers and industry trends through seminars, guest lectures, field trips and workshops. Your courses will include both theoretical study and hands-on experience in the fields of fiction, documentary and experimental filmmaking.
