Sheridan’s post-graduate certificate in Advanced Television and Film (ATVF) is expanding its scope by adding a third semester of study, beginning in September, 2013.  “This additional semester will allow for expanded internship opportunities, entrepreneurship projects, or master’s degree preparation for those students wishing to study abroad at any of our numerous articulation and CILECT partner schools,” says program coordinator, Jean Desormeaux.  “It will also allow our students to engage more seamlessly in research initiatives and experimental work.”  The additional semester is being added at no increased cost to students.

The ATVF program is designed for mature students who already hold a diploma or degree, and for working professionals who want to upgrade their skill set.  ATVF integrates the practical, technical and creative aspects of television and film studies while providing direct, industry-relevant experience.  It features training in sophisticated production techniques and technologies, shooting on professional sound stages and on location, producing documentaries, and expanding knowledge in areas such as directing, screenwriting, cinematography, editing, sound, production design and post-production.

ATVF is a member of CILECT (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision), an international consortium of the world’s major television and film schools.  Students have won awards for their word at film festivals across North America and around the world.
