Queen's University (Department of Film and Media )

The Department of Film Studies at Queen's University offers a comprehensive undergraduate program of practical, historical and critical courses. Many of the courses concentrate on today's systems of mass communication, information and entertainment, but they approach cinema and television, fiction and documentaries, advertising and experimental film, in the historical context that makes them possible. These historical and critical studies are combined with production courses in film, video and multimedia, on the premise that graduates should be versed in both the contexts and techniques of the art.

Film House Two converted Victorian houses at 160 Stuart Street on the Queen's campus in Kingston (see an aerial photo) hold the Department's classrooms, offices, screening rooms and workshops, packed with computers, DVD players, and film and video production facilities.

Two larger multimedia-equipped classrooms are located in Ontario Hall, one block away on University Avenue, and the first-year course is taught in Etherington Auditorium on Stuart Street, a fully-equipped theatre including 35mm film projection.

Film Studies began at Queen's over 30 years ago, and has become a department highly respected in the field. Many of our alumni go into the film and television industries, and have won Oscars, Emmies and Genies. Film Studies courses, however, cover a wide range of educational areas and skills, and are designed to encourage students in the critical thinking that is important for graduate studies or for leadership in any profession.
