Film & Television represents a rich and complex field of study that has both aesthetic and industrial dimensions.
Within Film & Television we do not focus narrowly on any single element. You may work in established formats such as documentary and drama or make experimental films that seek to define their own creative agenda.
This degree will provide you with a broad spectrum of practical experience to use film and video as a means of creative expression.
Undergraduate Film & Television students benefit from exposure to a strong programme of workshops and masterclasses provided by both the Scottish Documentary Institute, based at Edinburgh College of Art, and Screen Academy Scotland.
Visiting speakers who have appeared in the Scottish Documentary Institute’s schedule have included internationally acclaimed film-makers Nick Broomfield, Nicolas Philibert and Sergei Dvortsevoy.
Screen Academy Scotland, meanwhile, has recently scheduled Masterclass events with producer Andrew MacDonald and director Annie Griffin amongst others.
The BA Film & TV has been awarded the Creative Skillset Tick, the industry kitemark of quality, following a rigorous assessment process by experts working in the Creative Industries. The Creative Skillset Tick is awarded to practice-based courses which best prepare students for a career in the industry.
