British Columbia has one of the largest film industries in North America, which continues to expand yearly. Centre for Arts and Technology’s campus in Kelowna puts our film students in a central location with access to film sets in both the Okanagan and the Lower Mainland. In addition to small independent film shoots and larger budget production industry projects, all of our students get the chance to direct at least one of their own short films.
