The Documentary and Non-Fiction Media Production program at Seneca College is built on three pillars — creative, technical, industry — you will learn every aspect of documentary production, from story idea to pitching, shooting and editing, and market and distribution.
As a graduate of this program, you will be engaged in pre-production (research and development,) production (principal photography,) and post-production (editing) as you wear multiple hats as a director, producer, cinematographer and editor to make your first documentary film.
This program will equip you with industry-focused skills that are rapidly growing in demand, and the tools and resources essential to be versatile and agile in an industry that thrives on great story ideas.
When you graduate from this program, these are the types of career options that you can explore:
- Independent filmmaker
- Content provider
- Impact producer
This program will teach and train you to work in the documentary industry and beyond. You can establish your own production company or team up with like-minded people in the industry. Your career can include making your next film, working with established producers or joining a plethora of NGO, non-profit, or private organizations seeking documentary storytellers.
