Kingston University London

Course Introduction

Our Filmmaking BA course enables you to explore the medium of film, developing your own filmmaking practice while acquiring skills for working professionally. You will engage with innovative, ambitious ideas, developing successful films as group and individual projects, and gain a practical knowledge of filmmaking production. Your learning will be supported by technical inductions, workshops with industry professionals, guest lectures and field trips.

Kingston School of Art's state-of-the-art facilities such as our moving image workshop and specialist filming equipment will enable you to produce films with high production values. You will be able to experiment with digital and analogue formats, and shoot, process, telecine and edit on 8mm and 16mm gauges. You will also have access to our 3D workshops, photography darkrooms, printmaking and animation facilities.

Our academics are active practitioners in the film industry, working as directors, artists, editors and producers and able to offer access to unique work experience opportunities. For example, a number of our students have participated in placements at BFI Southbank, Institute of Contemporary Arts, LUX, Film London, Film & Video Umbrella, Fly Film and Suite TV.

The course has excellent links to industry such as the Stop Play Record scheme, First Acts and Random Acts London Network, in partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Arts. This guarantees a number of film commission awards to our students, in association with the Arts Council England and Channel 4. The projects are mentored and executive produced by our in-house film professionals.
