  • Objectives
    The London Film School's MA Filmmaking course is designed for graduates and those with equivalent experience in creative practice who wish to pursue a professional-level training in all key departments of filmmaking. You work in small units on six film exercises, of which a minimum of four are shot and delivered on film (16mm and 35mm) and are trained around these exercises to deal with the increasing complexity and the technical demands of the practical work. You also have to produce a Work and Research Journal for each of the three modules, reflecting on the development of your collaborative work, your skill base and creative priorities. You will study as a director, a director of photography, a camera operator, an editor and as a sound recordist, and you are likely to work, with supporting classes, as a producer, screenwriter or production designer. Although the course is primarily practical and vocational, it includes intensive teaching in film history, film analysis and other contextual studies. LFS is an international film school (18% UK students) founded in 1956 to teach multi-departmental postgraduate filmmaking. It is one of the few film schools in the world to offer 35mm studio-based filmmaking exercises to students. Graduates include Mike Leigh, Michael Mann, Alain Tanner, Anne Hui and Bill Douglas. London Film School is located in the centre of London and this course is validated by London Metropolitan University.
  • Entry requirements
    Most students will have first degrees. However experience has shown that formal educational achievement is not always the best indicator of latent filmmaking talent. Accordingly the School is willing to take appropriate experience into account. Exceptionally you may be admitted on the basis of professional or extensive non-professional film work or experience in a related field. For students for whom English is a Second Language: TOEFL at grade 550 or higher; IELTS with a score of 6 and no element below 5.5 or higher; Cambridge Proficiency Grade C or higher; Other evidence of spoken or written fluency.
