Bachelor of Arts in Film | Add new course

The Film program aims to contribute to the development of a genuinely Filipino national cinema by producing graduates with a well-rounded liberal arts education as well as creative and technical skills and social responsibility. It is designed to encompass all aspects of film.

The UP Film Institute is the product of the integration of two film institutions in the University in 2003 – the College’s Film Department and the UP Film Center. To this day, it is the sole academic body in the country that has full institutional membership in CILECT (The International Association of Film and Television Schools).
