What to Expect in Fall 2021

For the Fall 2021 semester, the university has stated a goal of bringing at least 75% of instruction back to campus. As Film at Mason prepares for this transition, we plan to offer a combination of online, hybrid, and in-person courses. Mason is joining the growing community of universities that require all students, faculty, and staff to get vaccinated, and to share verification of their vaccination status, in order to work, study, and live on campus. All are required to share vaccination status through Mason COVID Health Check and, if vaccinated, your documentation through the Health Service portal by August 1. Safety protocols and COVID health checks will continue on campus until public health guidance changes.

Fall film production and event plans for guest lecturers, workshops, and the Mason Film Festival are still being planned. To see what we currently have scheduled, visit our event calendar. We will continue to work on creating ways to provide a safe learning experience for our students and community. Be sure to check back throughout the semester.

The list of our Fall 2021 courses is below. If you have questions about specific courses, please reach out to us for more details. We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Trini Girls FAVS
Film at Mason student Kenge BaNikongo made her film TRINI GIRLS during the pandemic. With the help of her family, she shares the story of her grandmother Agatha Baker who passes down her knowledge of Trini cuisine to the family. The short documentary reflects how food has helped them stay connected to their heritage.
