What is Audio Visual Arts?
Audio Visual Arts is the study of filmmaking and TV production. Students are trained to become directors, directors of photography, producers, scriptwriters, sound engineers, art directors among many other branches of the filmmaking industry.
What differentiates AUT’s program from other Audio Visual Arts programs?
Our Audio Visual Arts program of 110 credits is constantly updated to keep up with the progress of technology and the market requirements. We coach our students to become creative thinkers who can write a script, direct a movie, or take on any role required in the filmmaking process.
Our instructors are professionals that have years of experience in the film and TV industries. They are dedicated to their students and use their own experiences and current projects in their teaching methodology. AUT also gets top international film makers, directors, sound experts, script writers to teach on campus side by side with AUT teachers to provide more value and a wider creative horizon to students.
Various cultural activities for our students, such as Cine Clubs, visits to production houses, and photography contests add to the rich educational environment. AUT also invites students to participate in professional shootings and directing faculty supervised films.
What kind of local and international cooperation does the Audio-Visual department maintain?
AUT collaborates with Roma Film Academy, and with Doc Nomads (Brussels-Budapest-Lisbon) for joint projects and exchange of students and faculty. It also participates in the CinemadaMare (the biggest gathering of young filmmakers in the world) initiative in Italy. Short films and documentaries produced by AUT students are judged by jury members who come from the Lebanese and international movie industry. The jury members give valuable advice to students and guide them for success in their professional lives.
What about professional certifications and internships?
Internships are part of the program and you cannot graduate before you spend a reasonable amount of time working in a production house, on a TV set or in a movie. Professional certifications is earned as you study and we recommend a minimum of two so you are very competitive in the job market.
