Certificate Programs: Pittsburgh Filmmakers' students may earn a Certificate in Film Production, Digital Video or Photography by completing a program of twelve full-length required courses. In addition, students must present an exhibition-quality copy of Thesis level (Film or Digital Video) or Advanced course level (Photography) work in a Pittsburgh Filmmakers public Thesis show.
The Intensives: Pittsburgh Filmmakers offers The Filmmaking Intensive and The Photography Intensive, accelerated professional programs designed to prepare students for a career in the fields of filmmaking or photography.
