Narrative

Depicting human drama links today’s independent filmmakers to a tradition of storytelling that goes back to our earliest beginnings.

Narrative filmmaking asks its creators to think not only about the form, but also about the content of the stories they tell. What do you want to say? How will you say it? How will it be understood? How will you create and communicate meaning? These are the tough questions narrative filmmakers must grapple with.

"Making films, choosing the stories to tell - the stories with which we will make spectacle - connects artist, writers, and image-makers to the most central impulses of cultural expression. Making films is a service to humanity, it nourishes a progressive, forward thinking culture. It is a daunting responsibility and a once in a lifetime opportunity."—Terence Nance, Faculty, MFA in Film
