Digital Filmmaking (BFA)

You hear a song and think of a gorgeous shot to accompany it. You meet people and subconsciously create characters from their personalities. While friends see just a movie, you see deliberate decision-making, careful planning, and an executed vision. If any of these sound familiar, Loyola is the place for you.

Our Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Filmmaking degree dives into both the beauty and the business of film within the context of a fine arts program. With our state-of-the-art facilities, industry-recognized and distinguished faculty, and comprehensive curriculum, you’ll learn every component of filmmaking, from screenwriting and pre-visualization, to cinematography and directing for the camera, to post-production and editing. But you’ll also gain a deep knowledge of the film business from faculty with years of industry experience, and understand the finance, legal issues, marketing, and distribution crucial to success.
