College of Santa Fe (Moving Image Arts Department)

Creativity, character and culture -- more than words, they're ideas -- distinctions, even -- that shape life at CSF. Perhaps we're not your typical undergraduate college. The CSF experience is just that -- an experience. No matter your major, in and out of the classroom, with clubs and with friends, you'll go way beyond learning facts or completing a project. You'll discover fundamental truths about how you learn and work, as well as who you are and who you want to be.

The Moving Image Arts Department offers a comprehensive program that integrates film, video and digital production with critical studies and writing.

We are committed to developing a creative environment where students can produce work that challenges the prevailing political, cultural and aesthetic conventions.

The curriculum is grounded in a liberal arts education with an emphasis on social awareness and personal responsibility. Our approach is to look toward alternative modes of expression and to encourage students to think critically about artistic work. At the center of our program is the aspiring artist working to find his or her voice.

Our program is an intensive, four-year education in the key areas of filmmaking. While you are able to specialize in some areas of the program, our goal is to educate the total filmmaker.

From the moment you walk in the building you are “in production.” Your first class introduces you to the elements of visual language, sound design, performance and writing. From there, you will learn the fundamentals of film, digital production and post-production.

Essential to becoming a filmmaker is the ability to express your ideas in dramatic form. An introductory writing workshop will help you to develop your creativity. You will learn the art writing for the screen. Classes are available at the introductory, intermediate and advanced levels.
