Motion Picture Arts Certificate

  • The Motion Picture Arts Certificate program is designed for students who wish to gain an understanding of the basic functions of a film set and the professional practices of an industry-standard production. Areas of study include story development, pre-production, production, and post-production, with a focus on film crafts (camera, lighting, sound, grip, sets, props, etc.) technical skills and professional behaviour. Lecture, labs and project work combine to create a realistic and effective learning environment. The goal is to prepare students for an entry-level position in the professional motion picture industry and to provide a foundation for independent filmmaking. This Certificate forms the 100-level of the Bachelor of Motion Picture Arts Degree program and of the Motion Picture Arts Diploma program.

    All applications should be made to program 5901, Bachelor of Motion Picture Arts (irrespective of applicant's planned length of study - certificate, diploma, degree).

    Document deadlines (including application deadline) and admission requirements can be found on the Bachelor of Motion Picture Arts Admission Requirements page.
