This is the longest-running postgraduate course in the country in the study of film and television, and it retains its strong reputation within the film sector. In addition to theoretical, cultural and critical dimensions, you will gain an overview of the international film industry ? both historic and contemporary. You will also investigate production, distribution, exhibition and marketing, from mainstream commercial productions to alternative, experimental and independent film, video and digital work.
Past and present students from all over the world are employed in the film and television sectors, as small-scale producers and film and video makers, or working for larger organisations and TV companies as script consultants, programmers, executives and film educators. Students have also taken the course to develop and expand their teaching careers, and several have progressed to doctoral studies in the UK and abroad.
