Course Summary

The MSc in Film Curation offers you the opportunity to explore film programming in a variety of theoretical, historical and practical contexts. It investigates the material qualities of audio-visual media and explores the history and contemporary practice of projection and exhibition in cinemas, galleries, festivals and online. Throughout the programme you’ll get to work alongside industry-leading experts in film curation through guest lectures and placements, and you’ll be encouraged to respond creatively in both academic and practical exercises.

The MSc is designed for those with some background in film, television, media or communication studies (or related fields, such as art history) who are contemplating, or developing, a career in curation, community and educational projects, events, research or criticism.

The programme is designed to provide you with a range of skills that will enable you to develop as: a creative and cultural entrepreneur; an outreach officer in a museum, archive or gallery; a curator or programmer at film festivals; a researcher for the film and television industries; a creative practitioner; an academic researcher.
