"I wouldn't have imagined going to film school anywhere else. The University of Windsor's Film and Media Arts MFA program allowed me to work closely with supportive professors who each had their own specialty, which gave me a well-rounded film school experience.
As a student, my crew and I were able to use industry-standard technology and studio spaces to produce our films with the highest quality possible. I worked as part of a team with other like-minded individuals on set and created projects that screened at film festivals worldwide in addition to national broadcasters. My experience at the University of Windsor gave me the confidence to emerge into the Canadian film industry."

“The MFA program at the University of Windsor helped me grow as a filmmaker, both technically and creatively. By having access to industry-standard camera equipment, I was able to have a hands-on approach to expand my knowledge of cinematography and the technical aspects of the film industry. I also evolved creatively, learning about the fundamentals of storytelling, film theory, and editing to create more impactful films. Having a tight-knit creative community of professors, students, and mentors from the university truly benefitted my peers and I in establishing ourselves as filmmakers”.
