Welcome to DSA Video Cinema Arts!

The VCA mission is the education of our students in the art, craft, and technology of film, video and animation. The program offers intensive hands-on writing, pre-production, and production experience. We nurture individual talent and skills, and encourage students to become creative and thoughtful practitioners in the world of media.

Video Cinema Arts is one of seven departments parented by Denver School of the Arts – a comprehensive secondary arts magnet school (grades 6-12) in Denver Public Schools. In addition to a rigorous academic program, VCA students engage in learning about production organization and storytelling, film theory and application, production value and set etiquette, as well as the ins and outs of professional video editing software among many other film related techniques. VCA is committed to fostering a lifelong love of the arts through professional film education for the youth.
