The Documentary Film Production Certificate Program (full-time) is Vancouver's longest established intensive documentary training program. A 16-week professional program designed for students from diverse backgrounds, with some or no film experience, who are passionate about factual filmmaking.
The program taught by award winning documentary filmmakers, helps students develop thought provoking films about the world we live in. The program offers creative and technical skills needed to make professional documentary films using the latest camera and editing software in a production house environment. These films are broadcast, shown at festivals, screened on the web and used for promoting awareness in the community.
You will shoot, edit and collaborate on a variety of projects and produce/direct your final graduation film. You will pitch your film to industry professionals and come away with a portfolio worthy of film festivals, traditional and online distribution. The program is connected to a wide variety of industry professionals who come in as guest speakers and mentors.
The Documentary Program participates in the Lifetime Alumni Program which means that students who achieve certification in the program are able to take any course in the Part time Digital Film Certificate Program for free for the rest of their life. With the Lifetime Alumni Program, graduate students can come back to upgrade their skills at no cost.
