About

The Film programme of the University of Gothenburg is focused on developing your research skills and creative tools for enquiry in and with moving images. The programme defines itself in relation to the world. We encourage you to examine social, cultural, and political image-making, and we facilitate your enquiry and exploration of the medium of film—its ethics and aesthetics.

Overview

About

We invite you to embrace an ethos of artistic research which is processes-driven, invites reflection on methods of enquiry, and puts research enquiry at the centre of film practice. You will present your own filmic work in various forms, not least in public contexts. The subject is characterized by the image—the original moving image that humans through technology have mastered the preservation and reproduction of—and its consequence: the powerful influence of film on people’s image of themselves and their world.

The core

The Film programme of the University of Gothenburg is designed to strengthen the relationship between theory and practice. We actively facilitate situations where practice can present theoretical propositions and encourage enquiry in and through the practices of film. Throughout the programme, you will raise your awareness of ethical and aesthetic reasons for making selections of visual material.

Through lectures, seminars, and practical exercises, you will develop and clarify your own interest and theme, identifying artistic enquiries for your filmic work and exploring your own filmic practice with respect to method, process, and visualization. Through group discussions, you will exercise your critical ability in relation to your own and other students’ artistic work. By participating in seminars and activities in our research environment, you will have the opportunity to place your work in the context of artistic research and practical knowledge cultivation.

The environment

Film works closely with the programmes in Fine Art, Photography, and Literary Composition, in a dynamic interdisciplinary and artistic environment where each subject contributes to innovative working models and opens up new artistic research fields. You will have the opportunity to participate in elective courses in other subjects at the institution, widening your artistic enquiry and creating a unique profile for your practice according to your interests.

The surroundings

Through existing exchange programmes with the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf in Berlin, Germany and the Film and Television Department at The Wits School of Arts, University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, there are possibilities to study part of the programme abroad. We encourage and expect you to take advantage of the many opportunities we provide and to actively participate in events organized in the Film unit, including film festivals, public talks, exhibitions, and conferences.

Programme Structure

The programme is designed to encourage expressive possibilities in image-making and has a two-fold approach:

  • prioritizing the education experience by advancing research questions, methods, and theoretical propositions through a series of intensives conducted on focused topics or themes; and
  • supporting individually formulated enquiries. The first provides a foundation for the second, where you will develop an individually formulated research enquiry that progresses over the course of successive semesters and is transformed into performative filmic works. You will be required to engage with written texts, presentations, discussions of films screened, and to contribute actively to the educational environment of the programme.
