Brooklyn College, a great place to study film.
The Film Department at Brooklyn College prepares students to become professionals in the motion picture industry. Our rich and diverse programs offer the invaluable experience of hands-on learning and peer collaboration, training students in all aspects of the discipline of the moving image, from the aesthetic to the technical.
We have several concentrations—film studies, film production, screenwriting, documentary, and industry studies. Our faculty—working directors, screenwriters, producers, editors, cinematographers, and scholars—will provide you with both a liberal arts grounding in the history, theory, and practice of filmmaking, and invaluable insights into the day-to-day practicalities of working in the industry. You will develop a keen understanding of the processes and principles of picture production, an awareness of the multiplicity of ways in which technology works in the creative process, and an appreciation of cinema as the product of aesthetic, cultural, national, and historical influences. You’ll have the opportunity to intern across New York City and enjoy the vibrant film and cultural life of Brooklyn and New York. All this at the fraction of the price of America’s other great film departments.
The recent addition of the Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema, offering an M.A. and several M.F.A.s, extends the department’s reach to Steiner Studios, in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, offering even further opportunities for our best students, and those who join them from around the world.
We welcome you to BC Film, and invite you to join our community!
