Online Information Session: Film Directing - MA/MFA


  • 11am - 12pm (BST)

  • Online

Join Programme Director, Emma Davie, for an insight into Film Directing (MA/MFA), followed by an opportunity to ask questions.

The programme takes a project-led, practice-based approach to studying for an MA/MFA in Film Directing which specialises in documentary making. It integrates analysis of contemporary film practice with practical film making. Students choose to make a creative documentary or a “hybrid” film which defies genre definition and pushes the boundaries of narrative. We develop these through workshops and tutorials. Our students work within an integrated framework that helps them question the form of their films and enables them to find the right language for their storytelling.

The programme encourages ways of working as a film community that foster the important exchange of ideas, with inspiration from international visiting film makers and support from our team of documentary practitioners. Many of our students already work in the industry but come with the desire to re- invigorate their approach to documentary. We aim to encourage a fresh approach to emerging technologies.

The session will be delivered using Blackboard Ultra. You will be able to participate in the session and ask questions via text chat or speak to us directly. To book your place, please register through Eventbrite.
