Course summary

The Masters focuses on low-budget and experimental filmmaking and media art. It is designed to provide the necessary practical and critical skills required for current and ‘future’ screen-based production. At a time when new technologies continuously transform or shift the production and dissemination of film and new media arts, developing versatile skills and knowledge is ever more essential for those in experimental filmmaking, moving image and media art practice. This programme crosses between practice and theory of film, moving image and new media arts, and provides an open space for experimentation, while advancing skills and creative practice. It is suitable for experimental filmmakers, media producers, new media artists, and those involved in theory and practice of moving image arts.
