Film/Video


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The Film/Video program is committed to redefining what it means to be an artist working with the moving image. From gallery installations to multi-screen narratives to experimental and documentary shorts, our faculty encourages students to think outside the box to create works that move beyond traditional video and filmmaking. Our small class sizes facilitate one-on-one contact between faculty and student, and course content often includes direct manipulation of the media (handmade film); web performance projects (YouTube and performance); and real-time video effects (live video mixing).

Our students are consistently challenged to create new forms of viewing experiences, which may be personal, political, conceptual, abstract, visceral, and visionary. Students are also introduced to a wide range of historical works and contemporary discourse on media theory and practice. The Film/Video program provides students with a strong historical knowledge base, as well as teaching them technical skills and developing intimate understandings of their own imaginations.

In addition to the broad range of courses we offer, the longstanding MassArt Film Society, a renowned screening series programmed by professor Saul Levine, provides weekly screenings of a wide range of films and videos, and is often followed by a live discussion with the artist.
