Global Exchange Program
Film students from the University of Southern California and Communication University of China pair up to create revealing documentaries.
The Global Exchange Workshop is a collaborative initiative of the USC School of Cinematic Arts Division of Film and Television Production, and the School of Theater, Film & Television at the Communication University of China in Beijing. Each summer, eight MFA students from each institution are selected to collaborate in pairs on short documentary films. The workshop alternates each year between the two universities.
