Film at Darrow

Students can explore film at Darrow in a number of ways. 

Through classroom coursework and hands-on projects, students learn not just how to create films, but how to watch with a critical eye. Students learn screenwriting, pre-production, storyboarding, and editing. 

Darrow covers the history and technique of both American and foreign film and the development of a narrative through the special elements found in film, while production classes give students the opportunity to put what they’ve learned into practice, gaining technical skills and experimenting with visual storytelling.

We also enable students to work with Darrow alumni who work in the film industry.
