Throughout the history of cinema, Rome has enticed filmmakers, featuring as the backdrop – and sometimes the starring character – of countless iconic productions, from epic dramas to romantic comedies to documentaries. AUR’s Film program is unique in being the only degree program of its kind to be taught in English and based in Italy, with the added bonus of having its seat in a city so important to the subject.
The internships available to students of the undergraduate Film program at AUR have given our students a wealth of practical experience and hands-on practice. AUR students of Film have completed placements with such established outlets as National Geographic, The Discovery Channel, Vatican Radio, Cinecitta film studios, and the World Food Program’s Office of Television and Communications.
The Film program trains students to be the next generation of film, television, and video content producers - professionals who are able to write, produce, direct, shoot, edit, and sound mix content of their own creation. Students will learn to master these skills to create innovative and meaningful media.
Students will graduate with a portfolio of their own diverse work in a mixture of fiction and nonfiction forms. This portfolio will enable graduates to continue their creative careers as directors, editors, screenwriters, cinematographers, sound designers and/or other possible roles in the traditional and emerging film and video fields.
Students of Film at AUR will find their time split between the classroom/studio and off-campus practical work experience as they produce multiple group and individual projects throughout the year. Creativity is given free rein to flourish as students exercise their newfound skills in making documentaries, music videos, advertisements, experimental films, short fiction web series, and more. Students are encouraged to use the backdrop of Rome to enhance their work, while field trips throughout Europe introduce them to the culture and settings of wider audiences.
Film majors go on to a wide assortment of career paths, including a multitude of positions in media and entertainment and, increasingly, in online video production - a relatively new but massive field of opportunity for filmmakers. However, the skills you’ll acquire as a film major are transferable and valuable for many different fields, including in seemingly unrelated industries like law, cultural industries, or marketing.
AUR's Film faculty bring a wealth of practical, industry experience and connections to the AUR classrooms. Our professors have illustrious careers that span all facets of the film industry.
