Screenwriter and playwright Daniel Gurskis chairs the Film Department, which currently offers undergraduate degrees. At present, undergraduates choose from a broad range of concentrations including film studies, film production, documentary film production, screenwriting and industry studies.
In the fall of 2014, the new Graduate School of Cinema will open in Steiner Studios, which are located within the historic Brooklyn Navy Yards. Through the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME), the City will invest $6.7 million in the new facility. Steiner Studios president Douglas C. Steiner notes "It will be the only graduate school in film embedded on a working lot."
The school will be able to enroll some 400 MFA students every year. Students will have access to the Steiner Studios lot, which will have versions of traditional New York neighborhoods including Wall Street, Chinatown, Brownstone Brooklyn, and Midtown.
The undergraduate degree will be expanded to cover a wide variety of studies: cinematography, directing, production (pre- and post-), screenwriting, and visual effects.
