Film is the most important mass medium and art form of modern times. Shaping our modes of perception and communication, it is popular in its appeal and radical in its practices. It has transformed our ways of seeing and storytelling.

Filmmaking and criticism is an area of immense interest, pleasure, and creativity. Supported by state-of-the-art new film teaching and production facilities, the MA in Film and Visual Studies at Queen's aims to offer a rich, diverse curriculum designed to enable students to specialise in practice-based and critical approaches to film, and other media arts.

In particular, students will develop skills in the analysis of film and media arts and apply these skills in the production of creative projects, and critical work.

Throughout the programme, students will acquire basic or enhanced film production skills. They will also acquire transferable skills valued by employers: creative thinking, verbal and visual communication, problem solving, project management, and teamwork.

WHY QUEEN'S?

  • State-of-the-art digital production and post-production facilities, as well as substantial lighting and grips kits, and a new purpose-built 'black box', giving students the opportunity to film in a multi-purpose, professionally equipped studio.
