Research & creation
Bridging the gap between the creative and intellectual disciplines, MHSoC supports the production and dissemination of a range of research activities that promote the development and renewal of contemporary cinema.
The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema recognizes the potentially transformative nature of research and research/creation.
Our artists and researchers combine creative exploration in cutting-edge research projects that acknowledge the centrality of innovation and experimentation in the production of knowledge.
Research and research/creation fosters collaboration between faculty and students; facilitating the development of research graduate student skills through their direct participation in faculty laboratories and projects. The School maintains a close relationship with the University's interdisciplinary research initiatives. Graduate students can access a range of research centres and labs that occupy the forefront of contemporary research/creation, including Hexagram-Concordia: Centre for Research-Creation in Media Arts and Technologies.
