Cornish Announces Partnership with TheFilmSchool
March 27, 2009
Cornish College of the Arts is proud to announce a new partnership with TheFilmSchool, a Seattle-based institute focusing on the craft of screenwriting and its intense relationship to filmmaking. This partnership puts both schools in a unique position to expand their creative communities and provide students with a new set of skills and aspirations.
“TheFilmSchool’s mission is to elevate the art of cinematic storytelling through intensive training in screenwriting and directing. Since cinema spans the visual and the verbal, temporal and spatial, performative and narrative, it intersects with art forms already present in the Cornish curriculum. We are delighted to embark on this partnership that both supports the respective missions of our institutions and contributes to the increasingly important place of Seattle as a player in the film world.”
-Jenifer K. Ward,
Associate Provost, Cornish College of the Arts
Through this partnership, non-Cornish students can earn college credit by participating in TheFilmScool’s three-week intensive course covering various aspects of writing and directing. Cornish students accepted to TheFilmSchool have the opportunity to earn credits towards their degree at Cornish with approval of their departments.
