Film and Media began at Queen's over 50 years ago, and has become a department highly respected in the field. Many of our alumni go into the film and television industries, and have won Oscars, Emmys and Genies. Film and Media courses, however, cover a wide range of educational areas and skills, and are designed to encourage students in the critical thinking that is important for graduate studies or for leadership in any profession.

OUR FUTURE: Film and Media at The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts 

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 now 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 new 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.
