Master's Degree Programme in Film at the Netherlands Film Academy
The Master's Degree Programme in Film at the Netherlands Film Academy offers a select group of maximum twelve filmmakers and visual, media or other artists the opportunity for further personal and professional development within an investigate, highly demanding and internationally oriented setting. The focus of the course is on artistic research in and through film, defined as an ongoing process in which artistic practice feeds the need for research, which in turn inspires artistic practice.
The two-year programme is open to all moving image makers with a relevant bachelor's degree, several years of experience in the field and an interesting research topic, related to an idea for a project they may want to develop. This research question and project idea also serve as the thread that runs throughout this question-driven programme.
In terms of its set-up, the programme is unique in its kind, both in the Netherlands and beyond. Its research-based perspective, select group of students and the diversity of their backgrounds, and its attention to other art forms and digital media, lend the Netherlands Film Academy's master's programme a highly individual identity.
