Cinema Arts

Our Cinema Arts program is designed to enrich the overall college preparatory education that every Providence student receives. It is the presumption of the Department Director that the students involved in this program will assume leadership roles in the media industry at some future point in their lives. With this in mind, Cinema Arts students are held to the highest standards of artistic excellence and creative integrity. Upon completion of the four-year program, our Cinema Arts Pioneers are uniquely qualified to compete for positions at the best film and media schools in the nation.
Not only do our Cinema Arts Pioneers work in a first-class studio with professional-grade equipment, they are also provided the opportunity to compete in various film competitions and to hear from guest speakers currently working at the top of their game in the industry.
