The support project for full-length feature movies that became established in the latter half of 2010 adopted a strategy that is distinctly differentiated from other universities and as such, in a mere two years after the start of the project, the feature movie directed by students accomplished the feat of being chosen as a finalist at Busan International Film Festival. The university has started to provide support for full feature films to also graduate school students from 2014. Going forward, the university plans to operate an internal production company that is part of the school curriculum by developing an innovative curriculum that has integrated the education area and industry area, and shall establish a competitive system with existing movie industry sites by effectively helping students to start venture companies.
