The Film Studies Program at the University of Colorado, Boulder is
searching for qualified candidates for a tenure-track position in
cinema production. We anticipate hiring at the assistant professor

those who would strengthen the Department's diversity. The Film
Studies Program has a longstanding record of supporting innovation in
the art of cinema; the late Stan Brakhage taught for over twenty
years at CU-Boulder within the Film Studies area. Film Studies offers
degrees in filmmaking (BFA) as well as critical studies (BA); the BFA
is focused on the art of independent filmmaking, and the BA
emphasizes the critical study of film as an art form. We have
recently added to our offerings an interdisciplinary MFA degree in
collaboration with the Department of Art and Art History. For more
information about the Film Studies program and facilities, please see
