Our mission is to provide future filmmakers, visual studies theorists, digital video artists, traditional film historians, avant-garde thinkers, experimental arts practitioners, Hollywood screenwriters, film philosophers, solo filmic artisans, cultural studies scholars, mixed-media/time-based artists, filmic fiction writers, contemplative critics, and other poets with a hands-on experience of the cinematic.
We invite you to join the Department of Cinematic Arts, of the College of Fine Arts, in leading filmmaking, video production, and related art, thought, and practice at the University of New Mexico. We are dedicated to the study and practice of film and video as art. You can earn the BA or minor in Media Arts, study a single course in production or critical studies, or take courses for graduate credit (although we don’t as yet offer a Masters Degree in Film Studies). Find our classes listed under Media Arts in the University schedule and catalog.
