Villa Maria adding degree in digital filmmaking

Villa Maria College is adding to its fine arts offerings with a new bachelor’s degree in digital filmmaking.

College officials announced Wednesday that they will launch the program in fall 2016. Students will be required to take courses in film theory, photography, creative writing, lighting and film editing, as well as general education courses in the liberal Arts and sciences. They also will do a final film project and internship.

College officials expect the new program to contribute to Western New York’s emergence in recent years as a destination for film production.
