Course content

MA Film & Television at Falmouth University reflects and interrogates the highly fluid nature of the contemporary screen media environment.

You'll study, interpret and contest the notion of digital culture historically, socially, politcally and artistically through research and creative practice. You'll fracture traditional categorisations by looking into the increasingly blurred boundaries between film and television, art and technology, and production and consumption.

Together we will examine how directors like Ben Wheatley and companies like Curzon and Film4 are making use of multi-platform release schedules. And how brands like HBO, Amazon and Netflix are shaping what we watch and how we watch it.

We live in an age where anyone with a phone and a laptop can create visual projects, making originality and clear industry pathways less discernable. In their place, a new and fruitful framework has been built for those who have the talent, dedication and adaptability to embrace such potential. However, our MA still contends that fundamental skills are the basis of sound academic work and creative practice.

You will shape the curriculum around your own interests. The most successful film and television makers are students of their chosen medium, highly knowledgeable of historical legacy and social-political context. You will not only learn how to develop, write, produce, shoot, record, direct and edit, but why, philosophically and creatively, your ideas are worth being made.
