The Cinema major at Binghamton University works on honing a student’s analytical and production skills. The primary focus of this program is how technical skills are used in the creation of meaningful artworks. Upper-level classes such as Filmmaking and Digital Video-making help students craft their artistic voices and explore experimental modalities, while also gaining technical proficiency.


The Cinema Department at Binghamton University has an active campus presence through its Visiting Artists program that invites innovative and inspirational artists to speak on campus. These filmmakers often have varied backgrounds in experimental film, photography or documentaries. Previous speakers have included artists whose works have been screened at the New York Film Festival, the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum, and a winner of the Sundance 2005 Best Documentary prize.

Binghamton’s BA focuses on avant-garde, experimental and documentary output rather than commercial skills and connections.
