Course content

Exploring and pushing craft knowledge and its creative boundaries, the MA Film Production course has been developed with particular consideration for a graduates entry into a career in the industry, with an emphasis on progression and ability to flourish. In an industry where new and emerging filmmakers have little or no chance to learn on the job this course will enable you to gain the production experience demanded in a professional context.

Springing from and building on the seminal and celebrated BA (Hons) Film Production course, MA Film Production is driven and inspired by a professional film culture. On the course you will create, inspire, and produce innovative films, hone your craft and develop new skills to a high level. The BA (Hons) Film Production has Creative Skillset accreditation, one of only a handful of accredited undergraduate courses in film making in the UK.

The Arts University at Bournemouth is a world renowned specialist institution offering high quality specialist practical education offering equally celebrated BA Honours courses in Costume Design, Make-up, Animation, Acting, Modelmaking and Graphic Design. The MA Film Production course, with its access to those crew specific specialist students and graduates, offers a unique learning environment akin to that of a film studio. It is an environment that empowers students to collaborate with emerging artists from all the main film departments, and to learn and work together with them under one roof.

AUB is one of the few UK Film Schools to have membership of the prestigious CILECT group (Centre International Liaison des Écoles de Cinéma et de Télévsion). Bournemouth Film School at AUB celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016 and is the largest UK film school outside London.
