"It's about human imagination and curiosity. What's out there? What's in the great beyond? What exists at levels we can't see with our five senses?" - James Cameron
The TCC Film Program offers A.A. degree candidates an in-depth, liberal arts overview of one art form that has done more than any other to define the world view of the twentieth century.
The challenge and the excitement for the teacher and student arise from both the newness of the medium and the lack of an entrenched pedagogy or method for presenting it. A good film class is a study in sundry astonishments for all concerned.
Since the program's inception in 1989, several TCC students have been accepted to Florida State University's film school and other institutions, including the New York University Film School and have done well. Moreover, other graduates have gone on to jobs in the film industry directly out of TCC, showing that serious effort, dedication, and commitment are extremely important determinants of success in this highly competitive field.
