MA Film Production course at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) aims to assist students in establishing and furthering their film careers by deepening creative and technical skills and gaining mastery in short film production. 


The Film Production course at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) offers the opportunity to work on a variety of film projects in narrative drama and documentary film, as well as fostering hybrid productions between fiction and documentary and other forms of experimentation. 

We encourage students to take risks with their film-making skills, through trying and testing stories and narratives, using state-of-the-art professional equipment and technologies.  


Most modules are delivered at the Preston campus, with the main production modules based at the Media Factory, UCLan's £15m purpose built media powerhouse, with outstanding facilities and excellent technical and academic support.

 Students have access to a range of High Definition production equipment including advanced camera rigs and camera support rigs.
