Our Faculty and Staff

The Film Studies faculty brings expertise in many dimensions of the field. These include Film History, Film Theory, Film Scoring, Screenwriting, Animation, Narrative Filmmaking, Film Genres, Documentary Filmmaking, and Post-Production. Several faculty members have appointments not only in Film Studies but also in other disciplines such as Music, English, Theatre, Communication, and Art. This interdisciplinary faculty reflects the interdisciplinary nature of Film Studies as a field, since Film Studies crosses disciplinary boundaries even as it remains unique.
