George Mason University provides a perfect location between the two film worlds of Washington, D.C. and Richmond.

Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland—affectionately called the DMV—is one of the country's leading media production centers and a major contributor to our nation's $800 Billion creative economy.

George Mason University has built close partnerships with regional film offices, production and post-production houses, equipment rental facilities, film festivals, cable networks, casting agencies, television studios, professional media production organizations, professional sports teams, and companies large and small in order to support students as they transition into our industry.
