This is the blog for the Film & Media Culture Department at Middlebury College, one of the strongest programs in the field among small liberal arts colleges. Our approach focuses on crossing boundaries between disciplines, between various media, and between critical studies and hands-on production. Our curriculum covers film history, television studies, media theory, and video production, with electives in international cinema, documentary, popular culture, and a number of other special topics. We have just moved to a new building, the Axinn Center at Starr Library, combining high-end film & video screening rooms with a production facility incorporating 10 digital video post-production workstations, a soundstage, numerous HD and SD cameras, and a high-speed server for sharing content and online distribution. We graduate around 20 majors each year, and our classes are popular with non-majors as electives.
