Burlington College (The Film School)

Burlington College is an independent, progressive, liberal arts college located in Burlington, Vermont, offering two-year Associate and four-year Bachelor of Arts degrees, as well as several professional certificate programs. The College, originally called the Vermont Institute of Community Involvement, is a non-profit institution that is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

The Film School at Burlington College offers one of the premiere film production programs in northern New England. Founded on the principle of film as a vehicle for personal expression and communication, and sensitive to the democratic potential of new digital media, the program offers a range of opportunities for students interested in understanding the mediums of film and digital video, in learning the technical skills involved in making movies, and in applying these skills to a variety of possible ends. There are three levels of programs offered at the Film School, distinguished by number of credits involved, the breadth of focus, and the level of integration of practice and theory. Tailored to a variety of student needs and interests, these options include certificate programs in Film Production, Documentary Filmmaking, and Screenwriting, an Associate of Arts Degree in Film Studies, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree program in Cinema Studies and Film Production.

One of the distinguishing features of the film program at Burlington College is the personal attention each student receives. Most production courses are capped at a maximum of 10 students, and each is taught by a practicing professional with extensive experience in the field. With its strong associations with Vermont filmmakers, festivals, organizations, and events, the film program offers students extensive opportunities to become involved in an active and growing film community. Graduates of the Film School at Burlington College have gone on in careers as independent filmmakers, cinematographers, editors, and producers, in such settings as television stations, advertising agencies, production companies, and studios.
