THE KODAK CINEMATOGRAPHER-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM AT UCLA

The Kodak Cinematographer-in-Residence Program was established in 2000 to bring together the worlds of professional and academic cinematography, exposing TFT students to critically acclaimed industry veterans who have attained the highest levels of achievement within the filmmaking industry. Students study with these experts for an entire academic term through a series of workshops and screenings. No other film program in the country offers this level of access to such artists on an annual basis.
