About Delta's Program

The digital film program is largely designed for those who would like to be independent filmmakers. It's also suited for those who intend to continue course work in film after their time at Delta College. However, beyond the course work, pursuing this program has additional benefits.

You will find yourself surrounded by others who are genuinely interested in film and film making. If film making is anything, it is a collaborative art form. It's difficult to make films without a network of talented and passionate people to rely on. This program is a great way for students to grow their networks.
