The Film Department was organized and is run by James Dziedzic, one of America's most prolific and active independent film writer/directors. Since the inception of the program, the St. Michael's Film team has won the TAPPS State competition, as well as other film festival awards around the country. The program is set up to mirror a college film program, with a focus on film studies, critique, screenwriting, and film production. As a result, the students produce 5-7 short films per year, as well as document school events.
In addition to courses offered, St. Michael's hosts an annual Student Film Festival that is attended by student screenwriters from all over the country. The 2018 Student Film Festival is scheduled for May 12, 2018.
Current Film Courses offered include:
- Film I
- Film Production
- Cinematic Editing
- Film Critique
- Varsity Film
