Course content

Take the opportunity to explore your own voice and vision – creating sophisticated, professionally produced and expertly crafted films. You’ll learn from internationally-renowned lecturers and award-winning film makers who’ll help you to advance your practical and theoretical understanding of film-making.

This Master’s is geared towards developing committed film makers. You’ll have access to industry-standard equipment, including high-end cameras, a professional on-campus film studio and edit suites with post-production software.

You’ll be encouraged to experiment creatively – exploring the art of film making through the craft of script-writing while expanding your technical expertise. You can also explore methods of working with actors, directing styles and the rehearsal process, as well as evolving your engagement with contributors and documentary subjects.

Study style

You’ll learn through hands-on, practical courses delivered through lectures, workshops, critiques, masterclasses and one-to-one tutorials. All classes are delivered on two days of the week, allowing for work, travel and other commitments.

You can also attend international/European field trips to major film festivals to see works by established and emerging film makers. Your assessment will be both practical and written.
