Cornish Programs

Film

At Cornish, you will write and direct your own films. You will study filmmaking and learn the art form from first idea to script to lighting. You will make films as an artist first and experiment with language, sound design, and editing. You will dig into the history of cinema and you will graduate as a writer-director who has found their voice.
