About

Students of the Film program of San Francisco Art Institute study filmmaking in the broader context of contemporary art practice.

Overview

The curriculum of the Film program of San Francisco Art Institute investigates the full range of moving-image genres, including experimental, narrative, documentary, animation, and hybrid forms.

Student learn the craft of filmmaking in courses that teach skills of production and postproduction, enabling them to realize their ideas. The curriculum is flexible, keeping current with the ever-changing digital arena from multi-platform to alternative distribution.

A variety of methods of display—from traditional theatrical screening, to single- and multi-channel installation, to alternative contexts such as emerging small screen and interactive formats—are explored.
