Master of Fine Arts - Film and Television

The Master of Fine Arts (Film and Television) gives experienced film and television practitioners, and high level film students, the opportunity to engage in independent research in their field. The degree will enable student researchers to develop mastery and advance the practice and theory in their field.


Candidates will propose, and with their supervisor, will develop their own topic for research. Most commonly the project will not be production based. For example, a suitable creative project might be writing a completed feature film script or researching an aspect of film and television practice. Projects may contain some elements of production where appropriate (e.g., a trailer or short animation).


While primarily self directed, students will work with one or two supervisors from the School of Film and Television’s academic staff. Selection of candidates depends on the school’s ability to match applicants’ projects with available supervision. All creative projects must be accompanied by a written dissertation (normally 12,000 words), which compliments and illuminates the creative work and places it within a scholarly context.
