About Film Production, Diploma - at Toronto Film School

The program offers an intensive, behind-the-scenes education that covers all areas of filmmaking. You will experience every phase of pre-production, production and post-production while learning from industry-active filmmakers with projects such as Beauty and the Beast, Black Panther, The Shape of Water and Star Trek Beyond to their credit. The program covers various aspects of filmmaking, including writing and analyzing screenplays, developing storyboards, creating shot lists and preparing budgets and schedules. You will learn to shoot, direct, block, light scenes and capture audio, as well as assemble, cut and manipulate footage. Upon graduation, the Film Production Work Placement helps you experience the creative workforce through placement opportunities in Canada's "Hollywood North."

Entry requirements

So you want to be a filmmaker? We want to hear your thoughts about film and storytelling. Please submit two short assignments:
