Welcome from Our Program Director, Killer Films' Christine Vachon
September 1, 2015
It’s official. On January 8, 2015, the state recognized Killer Films and Southampton Arts' pioneering new approach to academic instruction in filmmaking, and awarded the program an MFA Degree in Film, the first in the SUNY system; and, on August 24, 2015, we opened the doors to our first matriculated class of film students. And what an amazing group of students we recruited, from California to Korea, from Montreal to the U.K.
WELCOME FROM ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR
True to our platform-agnostic mission, Southampton Arts’ Graduate Program in Digital Filmmaking grows out of the almost 40-year history of the Southampton Summer Writers Conference, branching off of long-established programs in theatre and creative writing, and offering
classes both in Southampton and at our Stony Brook Manhattan facility on Park Avenue
South at 27th Street.
