“I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve immortality through not dying.” – Woody Allen (1935- )
Graduates from the Cinema, Video, and Communications Profile make one of two broad choices upon completion of their studies. Most successful students go on to university and pursue their studies in a variety of fields, ranging from Film Production and Communications to the Humanities, Social Science, and Education. Others choose to be entrepreneurial and enter the freelance market as videographers, photographers, web designers, and entry-level film production assistants.
The Cinema, Video and Communications curriculum is designed primarily to prepare students for undergraduate university studies. It is not a career program.
To continue their education, many of our graduates select Concordia University, which offers programs in film studies, media production, communications and cultural studies. Many also choose to apply to other universities in Montreal, as well as out of province such as the University of Ottawa and Ryerson in Toronto. Others decide to delay going to university and pursue a career in the media or other para-academic activities.
The field of communications covers a wide range of professional opportunities. Our graduates are working in video production; television broadcasting, in areas such as news reporting, network program development, and hosting talk-shows; as well as in radio, with a focus on news reporting and audio production; others pursue newspaper journalism; animation; feature, documentary and independent film script-writing and production; and the new interactive media, designing, developing, and maintaining web sites.
For more than 30 years Cinema, Video, and Communications has helped students develop their skills and talents, turning their dreams into realities.
