The McCallum Cinematic Arts Program is an intensive four-year program based on the idea that one must make movies to learn to make movies. The coursework revolves around students writing and shooting films. Our goal is to prepare students for college film programs and industry careers.

Cinematic Arts is one of nine formal fine arts programs at the McCallum Fine Arts Academy, the flagship arts school in the Austin Independent School District.
