The Filmmaking programme at University of Bradford will engage you in the production of advanced digital film products.


In the Filmmaking programme at University of Bradford you will study modules in the production and technology of videography (shooting, editing, post-production), together with specialist modules in film industry practices, music video commissioning and film history and context.

Students on the MA Filmmaking programme also have the opportunity to work with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) through Bradford UNESCO City of Film to help develop the work of UNESCO including:

  • Greater understanding of the work of UNESCO across the world and how filmmakers might respond to this
  • Greater understanding of the UNESCO Cities of Film and filmmaking in other countries around the world
  • Guest lectures from experts in other countries

Graduates of this programme will have acquired the tools of critical analysis, ideas-generation and industry understanding to go on to produce successful practical projects.

The inter-relationship between theory, creativity and practice is increasingly valued by employers, and the programme builds on a strong School tradition of integrating theory and practice.

In addition to self-directed film work it will be possible, in specific modules such as Film Industry Practices and the MA Project, to focus on stories, issues and directives related to the work of the UNESCO network. The combined approach by the University of Bradford and Bradford UNESCO City of Film aims to provide professional filmmakers with a global outlook and access to a global network of film opportunities.
