FILM 460 Showcase image

FILM 460, the Major Project course, is a year long course that allows students to create an honours thesis project within a critical framework. In this course, each student designs, researches and produces their own project (academic, creative, or a combination of both). Students work independently, but within a mutually supportive environment where students and faculty members provide feedback, advise, and technical and conceptual support. The projects in the 2020-21 academic year were produced under the difficult conditions of the pandemic, and we are especially proud of the resourcefulness, resilience and adaptability our students have shown.

Here is a sample of the work produced in FILM 460:
