The Film MFA Program in Creative Producing is a three-year film school program that takes advantage of Columbia’s unique geography at the center of the independent film world, with the mission of creating the next generation of producers.

The program emphasizes the role of the producer as the creative force behind a project, requiring business skills, the ability to form creative collaborations and an understanding of an ever changing marketplace.

Our faculty consists of working members of the New York and Hollywood filmmaking communities, who bring to the program a wealth of day-to-day practical knowledge in all areas of producing film and television including script development, finance, physical production, distribution and new technologies.

Students share a common first year with students in the MFA Film: Screenwriting/Directing program, reflecting the faculty’s belief that the best training for producers includes work in all of these disciplines. It also builds friendships and professional collaborations that last throughout the program and beyond, and fosters the environment of mutual support that we believe is essential to the creation of film.
