Course summary

OVERVIEW

Our MA Filmmaking course will provide a stimulating, supportive and professional environment in which you can freely yet rigorously develop your unique individual voice and equip you with the skills to transform dreams into cinematic realities.

The programme is designed to support those who wish to work professionally in the film industry either in fiction, documentary or experimental filmmaking, including immersive virtual reality productions.

You will make three films over the course of the year (a documentary, a fiction film, and then a graduation film in any genre). You will combine theory and production in these film practice modules, while also extending your knowledge and understanding of the context of filmmaking in two other classroom-based modules.

Teaching on this master's is undertaken by active and award-winning film practitioners. You will also have the opportunity to attend specialist industry events at the Glasgow Film Festival. Opportunities will also exist to learn from the professionals who work in Film City and, on occasion, for you to make use of the Film City facilities to complete post-production on your own films.

PLACEMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Our MA Filmmaking course allows you exclusive access to strands within the context of film festivals. It provides you with privileged access to industry visitors, and takes advantage of their presence in the country to run special industry events with our partners.

There will also be opportunities for you to learn from the professionals who work in Film City, and to make use of their facilities (facilities which no UK university can rival).

Placement opportunities are also likely to emerge through the Scottish Film Talent Network.
