Become a 21st-Century Storyteller

Put your plans in motion with a concentration in Film and Video from Edinboro University.

Smart phones put a video camera in every pocket. Online tutorials train everyone in the latest editing software. The pressure is on tomorrow’s media producers — not just to operate sophisticated equipment — but to tell compelling stories and to craft eye-popping images that get noticed.

In the studio, on location or in post-production labs, small groups of student filmmakers create movies alongside accessible, award-winning faculty. The Edinboro B.F.A. is a degree program designed to feel like a personalized apprenticeship in 21st-century storytelling. The hours spent setting lights, color-grading footage or recording multi-track scores aren’t merely to acquire skills through assignments and exercises. Instead, each course works to build an employer-ready portfolio of polished projects for film festival screenings nationwide. You’ll graduate ready to make your mark in the growing film and video industry.

There is no portfolio review prior to admission. Just bring your passion for the arts and a desire to work hard in a multidisciplinary, highly supportive environment.
