Students are exposed to the possibilities of both digital and analog technologies, and the School’s scholarly and artistic community celebrates its celluloid heritage and participates in the construction of the cinema of the future.
School programs -always evolving- embrace diversity, both in artistic formats and in the cultural values espoused through the study, creation, and dissemination of the cinema. The School's mission is inseparable from its commitment to the relevance and responsibility of its activities to the community, understood as being rooted here in Montreal and Quebec, throughout Canada, and internationally
