Liverpool is the second most filmed in city after London and has a vibrant media and cultural industry. With the Twickenham Studios film production facility due to open in the Littlewoods Building in 2020, there is no better time to study Film in Liverpool.
This forward-looking MA prepares you for bridging the traditional gap between theory and practice, by inviting you to both ‘think’ and ‘do’ film, thus bringing down barriers and forging new approaches to the analysis and production of films.
The MA Film promotes an experimental approach that considers film as a tool for research and a means for understanding, exploring and representing the world. The programme will build a cohort of practice-informed academics, and theory-informed practitioners, while offering the opportunity to study in a dynamic city with a burgeoning film industry.
