One of the first universities in the world to offer a programme of study in this field, Edinburgh is pioneering in its development of an active learning and teaching environment for the study of film, exhibition and curation.
This taught Masters programme combines rigorous critical thinking with experiments in creative practice, deepening your understanding of film and the ways in which it communicates with many audiences.
As a Film, Exhibition and Curation student, you’ll explore a series of approaches to the often neglected consideration of film’s movements and migrations within the context of the rich and varied festival, gallery, archive and exhibition cultures of Scotland, the UK and beyond.
You’ll work on imaginative curatorial projects, both independently and collaboratively, with input from industry partners. Assignments range from pitches to programming, and you’ll be assessed in ways that support you in producing experimental work and discovering yourself as a reflective professional.
A UK 2:1 degree, or its international equivalent. Multidisciplinary and comparative approaches are key aspects of film studies and students are welcomed from areas of study other than film.
