Course content

This innovative programme explores film curatorship and exhibition using a combination of rigorous academic study, integrated applied project work and critical thinking. Whether your background is in film, or you are intrigued by its social and cultural significance, you will discover how film meets its audiences and ways in which exhibitions are conceptualised and created in a rapidly transforming environment.

The programme draws on the expertise of visiting professionals, including film festival directors, curators, programmers and filmmakers. Through the combination of individual and group work you will learn how to integrate theoretical knowledge and critical thinking with professional skills, such as creative collaboration, programming, establishing industry links, sourcing films, promotion and communicating with diverse audiences.

Project work will enable you to reach out beyond the University to create events, and you will be supported in building collaborations and cross-disciplinary connections that engage with Scotland’s thriving film and festival cultures.
