A PROGRAM IN THEORY, PRODUCTION, HISTORY

Welcome to Cinema & Media Arts at Vanderbilt University!

Emphasizing cinema as a modern aesthetic form and hands-on cultural practice, our interdisciplinary curriculum combines filmmaking with the study of media theory and global film history. Our courses cover diverse international cultures as well as critical and creative practices, including training in both 16mm and digital cinematography. We encourage our majors to create work outside of the classroom and to submit senior projects to academic journals, film festivals, and conferences. Through the Vandy-in-Hollywood internship program, students may explore opportunities in the entertainment industry.

Members of the faculty publish and/or screen work in national and international venues. Locally we help to foster intellectual community through the Flicx program at the Belcourt Theatre and Vanderbilt's International Lens film series. To enhance our understanding of cinema's past and future, we routinely host scholars, critics, and filmmakers on campus. We also coordinate the Film Theory and Visual Culture Seminar at the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities.
