Welcome to Queen's Film and Media!

The Department of Film and Media at Queen's University offers a comprehensive undergraduate program of practical, historical and critical courses. Many of the courses concentrate on today's systems of mass communication, information and entertainment, but they approach cinema and television, fiction and documentaries, advertising and experimental film, in the historical context that makes them possible. These historical and critical studies are combined with production courses in film, video and multimedia, on the premise that graduates should be versed in both the contexts and techniques of the art.

Film and Media also has a Graduate Program in Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies. Housed in the state-of-the-art Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, the Master's and PhD in Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies are unique because of their linkage of adjacent disciplines: film and media studies and, more generally, the study of screen cultures, film and media production, and curatorial studies and practice. These multidisciplinary and professionally-oriented programs provide students with a wide range of course options and professional opportunities, including academia, arts management, programming, media production (from mainstream media, to artistic and activist production), and curation.



Media and Performance Production is a distinctive Bachelor of Arts degree specialization co-coordinated by the Department of Film & Media and the Dan School of Drama & Music.  MAPP is ideal for students interested in the creative and production aspects of Film, Drama and Music, paying particular attention to the cross-disciplinary opportunities that are becoming increasingly important in today’s digital age. MAPP focuses on all aspects of mediatization from moving image and sound production to the intermedial integration of “media” into live arts. 

What is MAPP?


This innovative program is aimed at students with interests and abilities in both Computing and the Fine Arts. You can participate in advanced courses in Art, Drama, Film, or Music, while maintaining a solid concentration in Computer Science and Mathematics. Fill out your degree with electives in other Arts areas and interdisciplinary courses of all kinds. Graduates can expect to work in the entertainment industry, in art galleries and museums, in multimedia design and production, and in developing the next generation of software for the Arts.
