Study Abroad Options in the Filmmaking Major
Working closely with your Program Director, you will be able to spend a semester abroad, potentially completing an international internship, while satisfying all of the requirements for your Filmmaking major. This incredibly valuable learning experience will help you gain greater appreciation for other culture and will strengthen your filmmaking skills and artistic voice by exposing you to different filmmaking traditions and practices.
Our Montreal campus is an ideal location for Filmmaking students, being only two hours away from the Burlington campus. Montreal is a dynamic cultural and media center, home to the production of many Hollywood films and cultural festivals and events. Its thriving and vibrant film industry offers students opportunities to study with film professionals, attend film festivals, and seek internship opportunities.
In addition to spending a semester in Montreal, Filmmaking students can participate in the Montreal Summer Film Program. Live in Montreal for two months, study Urban Indie Filmmaking with celebrated Champlain College professor and Hollywood director Rob Schmidt Barracano, and earn up to 12 credits.

In the extensive research Champlain has conducted over many years with the business community and public-sector organizations, "Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek in their employees.
Champlain has taken a highly proactive position on cultivating this competency by ensuring that the College has embedded pioneering international learning across the curriculum.
Additionally, Champlain expects every student to engage in a study-abroad experience, and has designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, and even take an internship, and still graduate on time.
Experiences living in another country will make your more culturally sensitive, both personally and professionally, and give you a better grasp of the international policies, complexities and power of other cultural narratives.
