This course is a twelve-month, intensively taught practice-based MA aimed at graduates and/or artists working within the field of moving image who wish to achieve a professional level in their practice with the support of an Art Department that has an exceptionally high concentration of accomplished artist filmmakers.
The Artists' Film and Moving Image programme, offered by Goldsmiths, University of London, is centred around the individual experience and knowledge that each student brings to the programme toward developing them as highly reflective and committed practitioners, as artist filmmakers who want to innovate in the expanding field of moving image within the context of artists’ film production, exhibition, reception and distribution.
The programme aims to enhance students’ professional potential by subjecting the process of thinking about, making, and exhibiting moving image works to critical scrutiny, reflection and discussion. Applicants apply with a proposal for a moving image project to ensure that they are suitably equipped to benefit from a focused, practice-based, student-centred curriculum.
Students are encouraged and supported to develop their own areas of interest and research through their primary project and dissertation, the development of which is supported through one-to-one tutorials with core staff and guest lecturers, as well as through seminars, lectures, screenings, study visits and a professional development programme that includes mentoring, master classes and workshops with leading professionals and affiliated organisations from within the international field of artists’ film and moving image.
The MA Artists’ Film & Moving Image is designed to provide you with an understanding and experience of artists’ moving image practice that has a breadth of outcomes and a variety of transferable skills in the knowledge that the professional field demands creative and practical flexibility.
Students completing the programme should be able to establish themselves as practitioners of significance in the field of contemporary art, film and moving image and related professions, including: independent artist filmmakers, academics, teachers, curators, writers, critics, as well as institutional and independent innovators.
Throughout the duration of the programme you will be introduced to and work alongside leading professionals from within the field of Artists’ Film, through workshops, seminars and one-to-one meetings. This will contribute to your establishing your own professional network, as well as providing significant experience and understanding of the processes of production, display and distribution of artists’ film and moving image.
The Department of Art has a long and continuing record of alumni establishing professional careers and achieving considerable success in the field, including nominations to and winners of the Derek Jarman Award, the Turner Prize and the Oscars, alongside and in addition to alumni who show their work internationally at museums, public and commercial galleries, as well as on national television, international film festivals and biennales.
