 Film Production programme of the University of Salford delivers comprehensive training linked to traditional production skills, such as directing, scriptwriting and cinematography, but it also brings these skills together with the latest industry developments.


In a Nutshell 

Times are changing in film production. The processes we’re used to no longer correlate with budgets, production techniques or distribution methods, but the machine hasn’t evolved along with its component parts.

The film industry needs artists who can adapt to changing production environments; practitioners who have the ability to invent new paradigms in storytelling. If your interest in film production extends beyond the standard, and into a cutting edge, practice-based approach by way of emerging workflows and frontier technology, then this is the course for you.

You will:

  • Be taught by specialist staff and industry professionals, gaining insight, contacts and direct experience of filmmaking for the future.
  • Study at our MediaCityUK campus - the heart of the growing media industry in the UK.
  • Use premium, state-of-the-art, industry-standard kit.


Upon graduating you will become agile, highly adaptable, fast-thinking decision-makers and team players, ready to explore a variety of career paths within the film industry both as an independent filmmaker or in-house practitioner.

 Film Production programme of the University of Salford  will provide subject specific knowledge and, through a practice as research approach, you may choose to develop your academic skills through PhD study and beyond.
