Welcome to the Department of Theatre and Film at UBC!
The Department of Theatre and Film engages each student’s creative, technical, and academic abilities through the various disciplines of theatre and film.
UBC taught me how to work hard and to find my own method of working. To take the tools that worked for me and not sweat the ones that didn’t.

Breaking the Bias in Theatre and Film
Every year, International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements and contributions of women around the world. However, despite the progress made by decades of women’s rights movements, the reality is that there are still biases and barriers to break. UBC Theatre and Film has reached out to members of our community for their input on how to #BreakTheBias.
