Overview

You will expand your technical skills in digital film, working across a number of specialisms from development and finance, to exhibition and distribution.

The MA Film at University of the Arts London (UAL) places a strong emphasis on collaborative production to reflect the professional realities of the sector, where the traditional auteur model is becoming less relevant.  You will learn how to build your professional networks and become equipped to operate in a wide range of industry disciplines.

MA Film is a practical course in the production of film drama; from development and finance to distribution and exhibition. It is designed for students who want a hands-on, industry-orientated course in the creative, technical and practical aspects of digital film production.

Taught through a combination of tutorials, lectures, technical workshops, mentoring, masterclasses and work placements, the course allows you to focus on one key specialism and develop it at postgraduate level while encouraging you to engage creatively with related disciplines and wider filmic processes.

Within the Collaborative Unit, you have a choice of pathways where you can collaborate with external partners as well as with other courses within UAL. These pathways could be realised through work placements, cross-disciplinary collaboration, initiatives towards the Major Project or a combination of activities.

The theoretical programme underscores all of the practical elements of the course and offers a shared process for students to explore both their own and each other’s work.
