Arts of the Moving Image
About the Certificate
The Arts of the Moving Image Certificate Program (AMI) fosters a critical understanding of the history, theory and technologies of motion picture and new media arts, while giving students the opportunities, tools and resources they would need to develop a career within the media industries, pursue graduate study in the field or become a media artist. The program’s faculty is drawn from departments across the arts and humanities and beyond, supplemented by adjunct instructors who specialize in film and digital technologies.
The opening of the Rubenstein Arts Center in spring 2018 marked a major step forward for the program. AMI’s facilities in the new building include a dedicated film production studio, teaching and editing spaces and an on-site equipment cage. The Ruby also features a 100-seat screening room equipped to project a range of formats, from archival 35mm and 16mm film prints to current 4K DCP digital projection—a great boon for AMI’s longstanding Screen/Society film series.
