Academic Highlights: The Film Studies Department

Wilmington, NC is the third-largest film production center in the United States, which is home to EUE/Screen Gems Studios, the largest film studio outside of Hollywood.  The Film Studies Department is a vital link between UNCW and the local professional film community. The department draws upon film professionals to teach courses in various aspects of film production. As part of the department’s Moviemakers Series, local and visiting filmmakers also make presentations and lead workshops on various aspects of independent and industry film production. The department fosters ties to the local film community through internships that provide students with opportunities to learn about film making by working on film productions and in various film-related enterprises.

The video above briefly highlights the UNCW Film Studies program.  We hope that you will explore the Academics website to find out more information about this major area of study.
