Why is Film at Mason Different?

Film at Mason offers a B.A. in cinematic arts production grounded in critical engagement. We emphasize diversity in perspectives and socially conscious storytelling in a program centered around inclusive film practices. Students train as filmmakers in the classroom and in the Mason Film Lab on production sets with industry professionals and guest directors. Students work in many cinematic forms and can choose from five specializations including Directing, Producing, Cinematography, Post-Production and Screenwriting.
