MPS Directing Program

A one-year intensive Masters program in Film Directing

This unique film program will challenge each student to create a professional-grade film under the tutelage and mentorship of leading film industry professionals. Employing a seasoned crew and abiding a budget, Masters candidates create films that exceed the student standard. With hands-on instruction from our award-winning faculty, and New York City as your classroom, you will graduate equipped and ready to jumpstart your career in film.
