The Vancouver Film School and Wilfrid Laurier University have struck an exciting new partnership that lets students from both institutions earn a Diploma in applied film skills and a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in film studies in just four years. This innovative program will provide film students with both a knowledge of film theory and hands-on skills in film production.
Laurier President Max Blouw and VFS President James Griffin will meet Thursday, Sept. 22 at 2:30 p.m. in Room R298 of the Laurier administrative building at 202 Regina St. on the university’s Waterloo campus. Media are invited to attend. A public information session will be held at 4 p.m. in Room P1017 of the Peters Building, also on Laurier’s Waterloo campus. Media and interested students and parents are welcome. Also in attendance will be Michael Baser, head of the VFS Writing for Film and Television program; Philippa Gates, Laurier Film Studies professor and program coordinator; and Richard Nemesvari, dean of Laurier’s Faculty of Arts.
