The Midcoast community has had a great impact on the students’ experience during their academic year, particularly for the film students who receive support from many business and property owners with props and locations. Student films feature a number of talented area actors including Tod Widdecombe (South Thomaston), Scott Anthony Smith (Brooks) Stephanie McAllister (Washington), and Tim Sullivan (Rockland).
Maine Media College, the academic arm of the renowned Maine Media Workshops, offers a 30-week Professional Certificate program and a three-year Master of Fine Arts degree program in the fields of photography, film and multimedia.
