The Film and Video Program invites you to apply to participate in a diverse community of film students. This community makes it easy to find others in your major and create, study, and work on projects together, as Film and Video projects often require groups of people to create together. This Learning Community is focused on the success of women in film and video production - all students regardless of gender are welcome and encouraged to apply.  Areas of interest would include cinematography and videography, editing, writing, directing, and/or producing; for fiction, non-fiction, and/or live event based productions.
