The Film and Television (FTV) Program at BİLGİ encourages interest in a wide range of expressive modes in film and video. Regardless of a student’s choice of specialization, the program’s emphasis is toward a professional engagement in the cultivation of moving images.
Students develop fluency in filmmaking crafts with hands on education in scriptwriting, directing, documentary, non-narrative filmmaking, production, art direction, cinematography, sound design, editing and post-production.
