Pathway development in Cinema and Film

University of Ottawa
Reference Number

With the recent approval for the development of a $40-million soundstage campus and creative hub in Ottawa, the city will become an important player for both the local film industry as well as for Canadian and international filmmakers. The increased opportunities to Ottawa’s film industry (estimated 500 new full-time jobs in the film, TV and animation industry) will make the area of Media & Film a high-interest area of study in the region. This project supported the development of a collaborative program between Algonquin College’s new program in Film and Media Production and the University of Ottawa’s BA with Major in World Cinemas and enhanced collaboration and transfer opportunities between the two institutions in the area of Cinema and Film.
