Description:What do Avengers: Endgame, Pirates of the Caribbean, Stranger Things and Suicide Squad all have in common? Grads of the Confederation College film production program worked on those productions. You could join this impressive list!

Confederation College’s Film Production two-year diploma program provides a comprehensive overview of virtually every aspect of film production including directing, scriptwriting, lighting, cinematography, editing, art direction, production design, sound mixing, and the business of film. With a high teacher-to-student ratio and the best equipment-to-student ratio, you get more instruction and better access to equipment than many similar programs in Canada. You’ll get handson training so you’ll learn by doing: write, plan, direct, shoot, edit, mix, colour grade, and deliver your final cut. You’ll make three films during the program starting right away in your first year. You will have 24/7 access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment such as the industry-heralded Arri Alexa camera.
