Call for applications: MA and PhD programs in Film and the Moving Image, Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, Concordia University, Montreal.

Deadline: February 1, 2021


The MA in Film and Moving Image Studies is a two-year program that gives students time to build a breadth of knowledge about cinema’s past and future. It also gives you a chance to consider its close relations with other media forms, from television through video and digital platforms. It provides you with a stimulating environment to examine film and the moving image as a political, social, cultural and artistic medium. Students have the opportunity to complete the program in a course-and-MA-thesis stream or in a course-only stream. 



The PhD in Film and Moving Image Studies provides an ideal environment for students to deepen their understanding of cinema and other moving image media from a wide variety
of historical, cultural and theoretical perspectives. It fosters interdisciplinarity in research and teaching, while being deeply rooted in the discipline of film and media studies and the aesthetic, philosophical, social and political debates that shape it. Seminars are designed exclusively for doctoral students and cover a robust range of scholarship recognizing the value of pluralism in moving image research.
