This course has been designed to offer a genuinely creative methodology and understanding of current and future potential for film experimentation in artists' moving image. This places the programme at the forefront of postgraduate studies exploring moving image in its most creative form. The course offers a range of input from staff in filmmaking, and will enable you to develop a major body of practical work created within the context of a critical understanding of contemporary experimental film theory.

Key features

  • You will receive high levels of contact with staff including regular individual and group tutorials supporting the opportunity to develop a significant body of film work.
  • You will benefit from the input of a wide-range of internationally recognised artists, filmmakers, curators, writers and other practitioners in the field.Course director, Phillip Warnell is currently working with the ICA and BBC on a new commissioning programme, New Creatives, to produce short three minute films and longer form audio works for various BBC platforms.

  • You will have access to the full suite of recently up-dated moving image resources at the Knights Park campus, including the moving image studio, post-production facilities and high-end film equipment.
  • Through the course you will have the opportunity to visit key film festivals such as CPH:DOX in Copenhagen. You will participate in public screenings of your work, and you will have access to the archives and collections of leading organisations in the field of artists moving image such as LUX.

What will you study?

The curriculum offers three distinct areas of critical and practical inquiry options, supported by a specialised seminar/lectures series: artists' moving image; independent film; and the materiality of film. You will undertake self-initiated research supported by taught modules and an experienced group of research-active staff, and will explore the critical and historical frameworks within which experimental film work can be understood and conceptualised.

One of the three modules you will be expected to complete will be delivered off-campus in a professional context. In 2017/18 this was delivered at LUX, the principle centre for the distribution and promotion of artists' moving image in the UK.
