Course content

This intensively taught MA is designed for artists using film, video and moving image who want to develop their practice and their networks to a level that enables them to work within the professional art world.

Goldsmiths Art Department has the most accomplished and significant concentration of artist filmmakers of any Fine Art Programme in Europe. We also have a number of staff who publish theoretical and critical writings on film.

The College has a full compliment of technical resources: studios, editing suites, sound studios and film equipment, and first rate technical support.

Applicants should apply with a film or video or moving image project (as these are understood in a Fine Art context). The Programme will focus on the development of this project, together with an intensive critical studies course, technical skills training and a unique professional development programme. The purpose of the proposal at application stage is to ensure that the students are already capable of benefiting from a focused, practice-based and student-centred curriculum.

The Department intends to work with professional film and video organisations in London to provide a nuanced and integrated professional development component to the course. Students should expect to develop their professional skills, networks and opportunities while studying with us.

As a one year, professionally focused and practice based MA, this course is unique in the UK and Europe.
