The “Senior Class Film Showcase” will feature innovative work from the program and will offer the community a chance to see the ingenuity and creativity of emerging filmmakers from Pratt Institute in the beautiful surrounds of  The Brooklyn Academy of Music. It is the culmination of each student's cinematic interests, and is not restricted in content or style. The resulting films from this year's degree candidates are traditional narrative and experimental fiction films.

Pratt's Department of Film and Video emphasizes an awareness of fine arts traditions as well as the professional disciplines of the contemporary media artist. Students in the bachelor of fine arts degree program acquire foundation skills while pursuing their own artistic visions in documentary, experimental, and narrative modes of production. The department is chaired by Leighton Pierce and is part of the Pratt Institute School of Art and Design, which is led by Dean Concetta M. Stewart.
