At Newman, students have the option of taking Film/Video courses.  The Intro courses focus on the visual storytelling process and untapping the creative aspects in everybody. Students learn camera and editing techniques along with writing and acting in original films. The course looks to develop students' professional and technical skills needed in film production and the way in which cinematic stories are told successfully.

Through the study and analysis of film texts and exercises in film-making, the Diploma Programme film course explores film history, theory and socio-economic background. The course develops students’ critical abilities, enabling them to appreciate the multiplicity of cultural and historical perspectives in film. To achieve an international understanding within the world of film, students are taught to consider film texts, theories and ideas from the points of view of different individuals, nations and cultures.
