Imagine Your Name on the Silver Screen…

The lights go down, the sound system rumbles to life, and then fade to scene. What happens next? Well that’s up to you!

Confederation College’s Film Production two-year diploma program provides a comprehensive overview of virtually every aspect of film production including directing, scriptwriting, lighting, cinematography, editing, art direction, production design, sound mixing, and the business of film. With a high teacher-to-student ratio and the best equipment-to-student ratio, you get more instruction and better access to equipment than many similar programs in Canada. You’ll get hands-on training so you’ll learn by doing: write, plan, direct, shoot, edit, mix, colour grade, and deliver your final cut. You’ll make three films during the program starting right away in your first year. You will have 24/7 access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment such as the industry-heralded Arri Alexa camera.
