Chair: Daniel Cross

The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema explores cinema as a form of artistic expression and aims to graduate filmmakers, animators, film historians, critics and theorists who appreciate both the medium’s history and its potential. Students experience digital and analogue technologies and have access to animation, sound and post-production labs and studios, modern screening facilities, and extensive film and video collections.

The School’s studio programs strive to balance practical and creative aspects of filmmaking. In the process of making films together, students explore techniques, develop critical and aesthetic perspectives, and articulate their unique artistic personalities. Film Animation programs teach the theory and practice of frame-by-frame filmmaking, and Film Production programs expose students to varied approaches to the moving image.

Students in the Film Studies program come to understand the history of the medium as well as address the impact of moving images on new technologies such as computer screens, cell phones and PDAs.

The School is also the administrative home of the Minor in Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality, a program offered jointly with the Faculty of Arts and Science.
