The University of Central Arkansas offers an MFA and BA/BS in Filmmaking, helping students to develop the storytelling and technical skills to develop their voice, and find their vision as filmmakers.
UCA student films are playing in festivals across the country, from Florida to California. Recent UCA MFA graduate Prentice Dupins’ Film Last Stop won Best Graduate Film at the 13th Annual UCA Film Festival in 2017. Last Stop is on the festival circuit now and has played at the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival, the San Francisco Black Film Festival, and the Hollywood Black Film Festival.
UCA Faculty Led Productions
Through our unique Production in Action courses, UCAFilm regularly produces short and length feature films that allows student filmmakers hands on experience crewing at every level of the project. Faculty members write and direct the project and collaborate with professional actors and crew from New York, Los Angeles, and Arkansas. Projects have included Missed Connections, Set Pick-Up and Expecting, which screened at the 2017 Palm Springs International Shortfest.
