This Program provides you with the foundation of film language, storytelling, and filmmaking skills through immersion in France’s contemporary culture, fascinating landscape, and historical sites in the Paris and Dordogne regions.

You will learn the language of film and will be able to master its basic, yet complex, elements by practicing it daily throughout the program travel. As the course progresses, you will learn to write, direct, and edit short videos and work collaboratively with your peers.

The program will spend approximately 5 nights in Paris and 12 nights in the Dordogne valley. In addition to the film course material, students will engage with the French culture through food, museum and site visits, and interaction with French people from all walks of life.

Program cost: TBD
