GW’s Center for History in Media will expand its scope to all forms of documentary filmmaking and change its name to the Documentary Center July 1.
Previously, the center focused on historical documentary filmmaking, but will now include instruction and production of all documentary film genres, Nina Seavey, director of the new center said. Seavey served as director of the Center for History in Media.
Documentary Center programs will be part of CSAS, but there is a separate admission program requiring a Bachelor of Arts. The program issues a certificate of completion after six months.
Entrance into the program is selective and people from all over the country apply, Seavey said.
Seavey said she hopes the expanded scope of the program will interest more GW students.
“This follows our desire for a broader mission,” Seavey said.
The center is working on a production entitled “Muzika,” which follows the lives and careers of seven Russian teenagers who have classical music training and come to America to become country music stars.
