Film Studies at Las Positas College offers an interdisciplinary approach to studying film history, film analysis, and film production itself. Students can choose from two programs: an AA or a Certificate of Achievement in Film Studies. Depending on their interests, Film Studies students can explore film's historical development, film photography, acting for film, intersections between film and theater, music of great film composers, multimedia reporting, film theory, as well as major global cinema traditions and directors.
Film Studies courses prepare those interested in majoring and/or working in fields such as Film, Television, Theater, Multimedia Studies, Liberal Arts, Cultural Studies, or Humanities.

As described in a 10/17/22 article in the LPC Express online newspaper, "The Filmmakers Association focuses on the creation of films by students, utilizing resources provided by both students and the school. The process involves everything from pitching story ideas, screenwriting and compiling the sound and camera crew, to casting actors, location scouting, production and post-production." Meetings are every Friday from 3-5 in room 713. Email for more info: LPCFilmAssociation@gmail.com.
