Course Summary

Course overview

Why tell your stories or make your films in the same way as everyone else? Realise your ambitions while exploring new filmmaking approaches in the context of an international learning community that champions research driven experimentation and peer feedback.

The MA Film Practice online programme is your opportunity to explore the creative depths of filmmaking as an art form.

You’ll be encouraged to challenge established, mainstream modes of filmmaking and think critically about how your work responds to the contemporary world. Through this course, you’ll build an expansive understanding of film, its audiences, and the many contexts in which it can be presented.

With our support, and in conjunction with other students, you’ll get to research areas of interest while putting your knowledge into practice. You’ll actively expand your body of work and professional skill set through a series of structured creative projects, collaborative activities, critical self-reflection, and bespoke mentorship.

By the end of the course, you’ll emerge as a reflective and critically engaged film practitioner with the capabilities needed to innovate in the evolving fields of film production and exhibition.


In this introductory module, we’ll help you evaluate your experiences and knowledge to further inform your creative development. You’ll position your practice, establish or reinforce a critically informed grounding in filmmaking, and start a reflective journal practice to support your studies.
