Why Filmmaking?

If you are looking for a dynamic, creative and well-resourced environment in which to develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of moving image, then this is the place for you. Our courses combine theory and practice with plenty of opportunities to perform, direct, and create high-quality productions. 

You’ll have the opportunity to develop your skills and advance across preproduction, production and postproduction disciplines, all within the supportive environment of the purpose-built Stewart Film Studios.

Preparing you for your future career 

All our Film courses offer you the opportunity to undertake a placement year or professional practice opportunities, nationally and internationally. Hear from Ben Young, Course Leader.

Developing your specialist skills in filmmaking and building your work experience profile requires active, well-informed student agency – a process that our programme is ready to support. We build upon the excellent offer of UoH’s Enterprise Team by taking students through an individually tailored work experience and network expansion process that is customised for the moving image, and designed to converge with an individual student’s emergent specialist talents.
