As one of the first universities to offer both courses and degrees in cinema, Concordia is home to Canada’s most comprehensive film school. We offer world-renowned programs in film production, film animation and film studies.
Our school takes pride in teaching passionate and artistic students, who are making their mark on Quebec’s creative economy and reputation and contributing to the province’s reputation in the industry.
Every year, nearly 700 prospective students from around the world apply to the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema. Only 70 are accepted. Half of our graduates are francophones, which provides our alumni opportunities to work locally and around the world.
At the request of the Government of Quebec, Concordia is expanding its Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema to triple our capacity by 2025. Our goal is to help address job market shortages, position our province as a frontrunner in the world of film and television as well as bolster Quebec’s economy.
Increased capacity, however, increases our need for equipment, student scholarships, bursaries, as well as top professors and staff.
Help Concordia keep Quebec at the centre of exceptional movie-making by supporting our school.
