The Cinema Program provides students with a solid and detailed
foundation in the art, technique and business of movies. The variety
of offerings are geared to developing a complete overview of the
creative and functional aspects of this popular art form.
A new state-of-the-art lecture and screening classroom gives
Palomar College students an ideal learning environment for film
studies. Production students have the flexibility to shoot with
professional film and video equipment and edit using nonlinear
systems. Our instructors are active in the field of movies,
as authors of film texts, screenplay writers and as filmmakers.
Many of Palomar's best students go on to major film schools, such
as USC and UCLA. Some go directly into the movie industry as
screenwriters and apprentices on production staffs.
