Each year, Point Park's top cinema, dance, musical theatre and acting seniors are selected to participate in the Conservatory of Performing Arts annual showcases to help launch their careers. This year's showcase season is as follows:

Cinema Showcase

Directors Guild of America
Los Angeles, Calif.

The cinema department produces an annual showcase DVD that features the best student productions of the year. The DVD is distributed to production companies, agencies and industry professionals in Los Angeles, New York City and regionally.

Additionally, the department sponsors and takes students to a showcase screening in Los Angeles that is made up of a select group of industry professionals and alumni to further promote and introduce the students and their work. Students also meet with managers, agents, professional writers and production companies, as well as visit television stages, studios and visual effects and post houses.
