In 2007, the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema signed an agreement with the prestigious Escuela internacional de cine y television (EICTV) in Cuba to explore opportunities for collaboration in education and research. Since then, MHSoC faculty members David Douglas, Richard Kerr, Rosanna Maule and Peter Rist have taught at EICTV and several Concordia film production and film studies students have participated in workshops there. In 2009, Professor Douglas offered a joint class with Fernando Birri, the founding director of EICTV. During the same year five EICTV students received scholarships from the Canadian government to study at MHSoC. Read about the project in the Concordia Journal.
Concordia University offers undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to take part in an International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) that will count for credit towards their Concordia degree, while paying the same tuition fees they do at home and possibly receiving funding. Learn more about international student exchanges.
Internships provide students with the opportunity to pursue work in the film industry, film research, archival work, editing film publications, or writing film criticism. Consult the undergraduate calendar or graduate calendar for details about program specific requirements and prerequisites.
