Master of Fine Arts in Film

A Career-Focused MFA Program

The FDU low-residency MFA in Film will offer studies in

  • Producing
  • Screenwriting
  • Directing
  • Cinematography
  • Editing

Internship experiences and workshops led by professionals are ‘built-in’ to the program. Situated near New York City, and in the heart of a vibrant media market, our students and graduates will be able to hone their skills and be better prepared to obtain work in the field.

FDUFilm’s approach to MFA study is unique. Distance learning is embraced as a primary method of delivering the curriculum. The student will alternate terms in-residence, and terms with distance learning, so that the program is two years in length, and includes four residencies.

The program begins in May 2019 - with the first residency period. We hope to see you here!
