About the Television Film Program

Led by an experienced faculty member, our department organizes an annual major film production that employs students, faculty, alumni, and professionals in one project. As they take part in the production, students have the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals the craft and art of filmmaking. In addition to the major film production, the annual student film screenings offer students a platform to showcase their work. The screenings bring together TV and Film students, faculty, LAU alumni, and professionals from the industry. The annual film festival features student productions from all over the world. The festival helps students network with professionals from the industry and other aspiring filmmakers from around the globe. Each semester, the TV and Film program organizes several workshops that cover pre- and post-production techniques, workflow, and other specialized production matters. Led by world leading filmmakers, directors, and screenwriters, these workshops aim to provide students with in-depth training in advanced and specialized skills.
