Offering two streams, film production and film studies, the Bachelor of Film Program at BINUS UNIVERSITY delivers an integrated curriculum where understanding of aesthetics, social and cultural knowledge, as well as business and technical skills go hand in hand. We believe that film-makers should create films not only with economic and business considerations but also to engage in constant dialogues with audience. We also hold that cinema, as a part of mainstream visual culture, has been an indispensable subject of humanities with new terrains of knowledge waiting to be explored.
In this four-year study program, students will learn how to integrate technical film-making skills with theoretical and practical knowledge to meet industry standards. Students will also learn how to analyze and write about cinema according to scholarly rigor and requirements set by film publications. The first year is dedicated to the fundamental technical film-making skills courses. In the following three years, classroom-based course, seminar, fieldtrip and film screening are provided to enhance students’ basic aesthetic, social and cultural knowledge, teamwork and communication skills, and film business knowledge. In the second year, the whole learning process emphasizes observation, fieldwork, workshop in order to enhance contextual thinking, theory and practice, and understanding of film production. During the second year, students will also choose one of the two study streaming offered by Film Program; film production and film studies. The third and final years are dedicated to advance learning of methodology through workshop, clinic, and simulation. During this time, students will also be given the opportunity to immerse real world experience through internship, community development, and research that will support their Thesis, in which students will have to conduct a research to support their thesis film or film analysis.
