UFSC Film Studies Program was created in 2005 – the first in the field of Arts to be offered at UFSC. It aims to prepare professionals qualified to carry out various activities in the audiovisual field and related areas, as well as to contribute to the students’ insertion in academic research. The program offers a broad training that allows students to choose their own academic paths among a wide and diverse set of elective courses. It also provides contact with a number of technical specialties, introducing the student to the handling of equipment and software and to group practices. Covering a diverse set of knowledge involved in the audiovisual production chain, the program stimulates the creative process and the contact with contemporary forms of artistic expression, besides offering a solid background in film theories and critical reflection.

The areas of work in the field of film studies are very broad, and include film production, distribution and exhibition, criticism, implementation of cultural policies, development of audiovisual projects, and film pedagogy.
