About

Supported by state-of-the-art new film teaching and production facilities, the Film programme at Queen's University Belfast aims to offer a rich, diverse curriculum designed to enable students to specialise in practice-based and critical approaches to film, and other media arts. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Film is the most important mass medium and art form of modern times. Shaping our modes of perception and communication, it is popular in its appeal and radical in its practices. It has transformed our ways of seeing and storytelling. Film-making and criticism is an area of immense interest, pleasure, and creativity. 

In particular, students of the Film programme at Queen's University Belfast will develop skills in the analysis of film and media arts and apply these skills in the production of creative projects, and critical work. 

Throughout the programme, students will acquire basic or enhanced film production skills. They will also acquire transferable skills valued by employers: creative thinking, verbal and visual communication, problem solving, project management, and teamwork.
