As a candidate in the Cinema Directing, MFA program, you'll learn to craft character-driven narratives, work with producers, and create diverse and authentic films grounded in the human experience. You’ll take on intensive study in writing and, throughout the program, direct your own scripts as well as those written by other directors. Over the course of the program, you'll work closely with a Creative Producing student to develop two major films: one that is director-driven and one that is producer-driven. You'll have creative control over some films, and you'll learn work-for-hire on others. Having experience in both the independent film model and the industry model will make you better equipped to make an impact in the field no matter which path you choose upon graduation.
