Overview

What we offer

The MA Filmmaking (Cinematography) is a pathway of the Goldsmiths MA Filmmaking. It is housed in a new purpose-built media facility with state-of-the-art teaching spaces including film and photography studios equipped with Arri cameras and lighting.

You’ll work on a number of exercises and films per term in your specialist role, culminating in a major film production towards the end of the degree.
