York University (York U Department of Film)

Clearly, our approach is working. Founded in 1959, York University is now Canada's third largest university, and world-renowned for attracting students who forge their own unique paths. That's because York offers an unparalleled academic experience. Our top-ranked programs set international standards. Our unique, interdisciplinary approach to learning allows students to combine majors in completely different fields. York's faculty expands the horizons of our students, providing them with a broad perspective of the world that opens up new ways of thinking. And our research tackles challenges by taking a uniquely interdisciplinary approach that results in real-world solutions.

York University's Department of Film gives students the opportunity to pursue practical training balanced with in-depth academic studies in the quintessential 20th-century art form. At all levels of the curriculum, courses in the creative crafts of cinematography, editing and sound, including state-of-the-art digital techniques, are offered alongside studies in the concepts and practices of screenwriting, directing and producing. Complementing these studio skills is a full roster of courses in the history, theory and criticism of the media, including studies in Canadian, international, documentary, and alternative cinema.

Throughout the year, the James Beveridge Guest Lecture Series features presentations by guest speakers from the industry, offering Film majors an up-to-the-minute insider's look at the working world of film and television.

Each year, screenwriting and production students showcase their work in public screenings. Films and videos by York students compete - and regularly win prizes - in national and international film festivals.

The Department of Film is part of Ontario's only Faculty of Fine Arts, which also houses degree programs in Dance, Design, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts and Fine Arts Cultural Studies. Cross-departmental activities are strongly encouraged, and Film students enrich their educational experience by drawing on courses and resources from these areas as well as the University at large.
