As a film major, you will have access that extends beyond Pratt into New York City itself. Your options for identifying new directions in the field are not limited to your Ways of Seeing Cinema class. You can visit cutting-edge galleries and microcinemas, world-class museums and film festivals—it’s happening all over the city. Opportunities for pre-professional experiences abound. You can join a film crew shooting on the streets of Brooklyn—or intern at places like the Museum of Modern Art, Saturday Night Live, or one of the countless independent companies that shape New York City’s thriving creative scene.
The future for the moving image is unpredictable and wide-open. At Pratt, we’re excited by the possibilities. Our mission is to provide you with the tools and techniques, an understanding of history, and a complex yet flexible interdisciplinary arts education, allowing you to guide us into that future.
Our recent graduates are already leading the way with their infectious pioneering spirit. They are directing films that have premiered at Cannes, Toronto International Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Miami’s Art Basel, and numerous other festivals. Some alumni work as video editors and producers at prestigious media outlets including MTV, USA Networks, Entertainment Weekly, The New Yorker, People, and Time, while others are directors for established commercial production companies or form their own successful media businesses. We celebrate their accomplishments and look forward to yours.
