Course summary

MA Film is a new opportunity to study film at Postgraduate level in Cardiff. The course provides a strong general grounding in the needs of the contemporary British Film and Television industry with opportunities to develop and hone key skills via multiple pathways that lead directly different career opportunities. By combining these different disciplines, students gain the opportunity to collaborate with each other, with other USW students and with industry professionals to develop their skills to a higher level. The MA Film (Cinematography) pathway is designed specifically for students who wish to combine a broader education in the film & TV industry and general film making skills with building their Cinematography portfolio and skills. You will work with industry professionals, practitioners, staff and fellow students from across USW on a substantial film project, utilising your chosen craft skill – Cinematography.
