Moving the Department of Film and Media to the new Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts will fulfill a long-held dream of having a purpose-built facility in which professors can combine the best in media studies teaching with high-quality production resources. We are very excited about being at a site designed to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration among all the arts and with the Kingston community.
