Diploma Acting for Film and Television

Niagara College

As an Actor, you are a highly versatile and authentic storyteller who understands the importance of a meaningful connection with your audience and the value of creating your own opportunities for success in the entertainment industry.

Toronto – sometimes called Hollywood North – and the surrounding region known as “The Golden Horseshoe” ranks third in film and digital media production in North America and ranks second as an exporter of digital streaming and cable tv programming in North America.

Our focus continues to be superior actor training with courses in voice, speech, movement, scene study and auditioning for film and television. We are also one of the few Canadian post-secondary institutions that offer direct instruction in The Meisner Technique, one of the foremost acting techniques taught today. In light of the changing nature of the industry and the rise of more entrepreneurial self-created web content, you will also study film editing, screenwriting, stunt training, voiceover acting, self-marketing and acting with technology (eg. Green Screen) bringing a dual focus to the program; the actor and entrepreneur.

Our instructors are working industry professionals in the Toronto region and across Canada.
