Urban Indie Filmmaking in Montreal

Filmmaking image
As the vibrant cultural capital of Québec, Montréal serves as the urban backdrop for this highly creative and immersive 6-credit (1.5 GAC units) Urban Indie Filmmaking course. From writing screenplays, documentary treatments, to mastering the tools of cinematography, sound recording, and video editing, students will engage with the film production workflow, including how to promote and distribute your films.

Enhanced by Montréal’s dynamic art scene, numerous festivals, and diverse cultural events, the Urban Indie Filmmaking course aims to foster innovative and creative projects, and to nurture passionate aspiring filmmakers. Working in small, collaborative groups, students will write, produce, shoot, and edit films using professional-level equipment and facilities at our Montréal campus. Whether working in narrative fiction, documentary, or music video, you will acquire the necessary skills in the cinematic arts to begin your career as an indie filmmaker.

The Montréal Filmmaking Summer Program stresses the importance of maintaining a proactive and professional environment. This filmmaking study abroad experience includes weekly screenings, master classes, a speaker series with industry professionals, and visits to local production companies and studios such as Eyesteelfilm, Parafilms, 4U2C, Cineground, Framestore and Mel’s “La cité du cinéma.” Final projects will be screened at a major independent downtown theatre.

Prerequisites:
Minimum of 60 college credits (15 GAC units) and at least one year (2 GAC units) of production courses by the start of the Summer Program.
