The Department of Film Design and Production is designed to handle the variable creation processes from an innovative perspective. The importance of theory and practice is considered at every stage and our tutors are experienced filmmakers with practical experience in cinema production processes. The programme is designed to respond to social and cultural needs with the aim of compiling and recording of the history and rich cultural heritage of Cyprus and transforming them into works of art with aesthetic and ethical concerns.
Graduates of the Department of Film Design and Directing can adopt many roles such as screenwriter, director, cinematographer, art director, producer, sound designer, animation artist, post-production specialist.
Graduates may be employed in various branches of the film industry, in the drama units of television channels, in advertising and production companies, in advertising and music video-making units, in the corporate communication units of public and private organisations, art festivals, independent media, internet series and films, as well as all kinds of media, public and legal entities that require moving image and storytelling.
Despite being a small university, it's absolutely a fantastic place to study. The staff is extremely friendly, professional & understanding. The university education system is a combination of theory and practical skills, which helps me be more confident as a filmmaker. It is a lot of work, but you can feel yourself improving every day. Coming from a foreign country, I am certain that I made the right decision in choosing ARUCAD.
