Welcome

When you look at our School's website you hopefully will notice something you will not see virtually anywhere else in North America. Unlike almost every other program, we unite theatre, film, and television in one School. Your ability to work in all three areas reflects the professional world and the exciting new careers that await you when you graduate. They aren’t separate in the world of work, and they aren’t separate in your experience in the School of Theatre, Film & Television.

 

Our extraordinary faculty offers comprehensive training in the art and business of storytelling. Whether that story is told on stage, on screens, or in the emerging world of media and entertainment, you will be given the education, training, and hands-on experience to become artistic makers and leaders for the future.

 

Part of our commitment to prepare you for your future career is our extensive internship program. These opportunities allow you to engage the professional area of your choice and learn from experienced practitioners by working alongside them.

 

Welcome to one of America’s most exciting arts environments. Come join us and take your place with talented colleagues who share your passion for the study, the business, and the art of storytelling. Explore the rich emotional possibilities offered only through live performance and the immersive cinematic and media experience we offer you in the School of Theatre, Film, & Television.

Three senior thesis films have been selected to screen at the 20th annual San Diego International Children's Film Festival at Comic-Con International. Jackson Huffman‘s RICARDO RIVERA AND THE MINES OF MONTEZUMA, Myles Gordon‘s THE REMATCH and Anna Agosto‘s LIGHT UP LULU will all screen at the San Diego Convention Center in July. The festival has partnered with Comic-Con – the world’s largest pop-culture convention with 140,000 visitors annually – for the past 16 years.

“My family and I have been attending Comic-Con for years so to have my film be a part of this festival is a dream come true,” says Huffman, whose film debuted at I Dream in Widescreen a month ago. “I plan to attend the festival and I am excited to see a brand new audience react to the film. In my mind this is the perfect festival and location for my film, with all the magic and adventure baked into the story. I’m honored to be joining Myles and Anna at the festival. Knowing I get to represent TFTV alongside these two talented filmmakers while also representing my hometown of Tucson makes this whole experience incredibly special.”
