The Film Programme furthers the understanding of cinema as an art of narrative, spectacle and performance, as well as a medium with important social implications within a university context of research and teaching in the creative arts and humanities. Though its aim is not primarily to offer vocational or technical training, the programme stresses practical work whenever possible.
Film in New Zealand is enjoying unprecedented attention as local filmmakers and their works catch the eye of the global audience. At Victoria, a major in Film is a major in taking film seriously. You'll begin in your first year with an introduction to film study. Then you can pursue your interests with courses that focus on international and New Zealand film, and the creative aspects of filmmaking.
