“The study of film can tell us so much not about the nature of the art of film, and about entertainment, but also about our habitat, and sense of fun and desire, how our cities work and our culture flows and inspires, and how the film industry delivers. It’s brilliant that the University of Edinburgh is offering this relevant, insightful course. ”
A post graduate degree in film exhibition and curation (FEC), this programme is designed to offer students both conceptual study and to engage critically with professional practice. Conceptual thinking and creative endeavour are combined with theoretical study and the pragmatics of delivery to give students every opportunity to stimulate their intellectual engagement with the field of study and develop their employability with professional skills.
The circulation of film, exhibition and curation is often neglected by producers and analysts alike, yet is central to the medium’s ability to find and communicate with an audience. Exhibition is key to the survival of independent film-making and the alternative visions of the world this can carry. This programme aims to educate and inform future professionals about the significance of this crucial field and to instruct students on ways to be creative in a rapidly transforming environment.
The MSc in Film, Exhibition and Curation will enable you to understand the circulation of the moving image, to engage with new audiences and develop modes of outreach and accessibility, to generate and manage collaborations, and to become a valuable presence and resource within the film community.
The programme is suitable for those wishing to extend their knowledge of film through the development of professional and analytical expertise and through the informed understanding of film exhibition and curatorship. Its distinctive approach offers specialist skills to those who already have some formal film education or professional experience, and will also appeal to those whose interests in film, exhibition and curation come from alternative backgrounds.
