This Masters in Film Curation offers you the opportunity to explore film curation in a variety of theoretical, historical and practical contexts. It investigates the material qualities of audio-visual media and explores the history and contemporary practice of projection and exhibition. In the core courses and beyond, we encourage you to adopt ethical academic and professional approaches and pay close attention to issues of identity, power, and access in your work. Throughout the programme you’ll get to work alongside industry-leading experts in film curation through workshops and placements, and you’ll be encouraged to respond creatively in both academic and practical exercises.
