We offer tours of our film facilities on the second and fourth Fridays of each month from 1:00-2:00 pm. Prospective students can register here. The Department Tours can be paired with a CU Denver campus tour (offered on Fridays at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm). Please note that we are not able to offer tours of other areas of visual arts (photography, sculpture, painting & drawing, illustration, art history) as part of department tours. Tours in these areas should be scheduled separtely (see below).
