NEW! CERTIFICATE IN ANIMATION THEORY AND PRACTICE:
Launching September 2023
The Department of Film and Media’s new Certificate in Animation Theory and Practice offers students a unique and innovative opportunity to study animation in an interdisciplinary context that embraces hybrid, experimental approaches to the art form and fosters the innovative analysis of animated media from Classical Hollywood and Studio Ghibli to experimental and VR/AR animation. Students can take a wide variety of courses in animation history, theory and production, including: Introduction to Animation; Animation Festival Programming; Animated Feature Films from Disney to Ghibli; Animation Production; Advanced Animation Production; Video Games and Culture; Animation Theory and Criticism; Computational Cinema; Virtual and Augmented Reality App Development; Post-Production; Special Effects and 3D Animation; and Special Topics in Animation. These courses teach students skills that can incorporated into animated films, video games, installations and/or new media projects, and that they can carry into careers in film curation, criticism, academia, or in the animation industry.

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.
