Students in MICA's MFA in Filmmaking program learn all aspects of filmmaking and to be at the forefront of emerging practices in film through the exploration of new distribution, production, funding, and consumption models. Through unique partnerships with The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Film and Media Studies program and the Maryland Film Festival, students engage with a collaborative network that offers insight into a changing industry as they prepare for sustainable careers in film and media.

Introducing the JHU-MICA Film Centre

Film Centre Marquee

MICA recently celebrated the opening of the JHU-MICA Film Centre, home to the College's MFA in Filmmaking and BFA in Film and Video programs as well as Johns Hopkins University's (JHU) BA and MA programs in film and media. 

Representing MICA's commitment to making Baltimore an international film hub, the JHU-MICA Film Centre is a state-of-the-art production facility housed in the historic Centre Theatre. MICA and JHU share space in the building, which allows both institutions to offer nationally competitive filmmaking programming by combining complementary strengths. This effort is further enhanced by a partnership with the Maryland Film Festival, whose future home in the Parkway Theatre is steps away from the Centre. Students in all programs benefit from this collective network, which gives them access to faculty and resources from two world-class educational institutions as well as connections to the professional world of international film and filmmakers.
