Student Films & Media

Students in the UNCW department of Film Studies make over 500 motion picture projects and exercises every year. Courses cover narrative, documentary, experimental, and animation modes, and most every aspect of the creative and technical process, from screenwriting to producing to directing to cinematography to sound to editing. Film Studies students also write and edit an internationally distributed cinema journal and program and present an annual film festival and conference.
