About the Division

Digital Filmmaking students

Our Rutgers Center For Digital Filmmaking is a collaboration between Mason Gross School of the Arts and Rutgers' School of Arts and Sciences. Our film program has its origins in Writers House, Rutgers English Department’s "filmmaking as creative writing" courses created and taught by our film center's director, Dena Seidel. These classes are in themselves unique--emphasizing story structure and film language before technology. You can learn more about the origins of our university-wide film production program in this feature story with accompanying video.

The Rutgers Film Bureau is our center's professional documentary office.


Students who choose to concentrate in documentary filmmaking will have the opportunity to work on projects in the Rutgers Film Bureau and receive professional production credits as co-producers, cinematographers and editors.
