Our students create work which travels; work which transports us in the dark space of cinema into other areas of the mind; films which move and question and provoke.
Our students also make films that travel to festivals worldwide, competing against industry professionals. Previous successes include New Talent Scottish BAFTA Awards and the Golden Gate Award for Best Short Documentary at the San Francisco International Film Festival as well as nominations and prizes at festivals all over the world.
Edinburgh College of Art is one of the best places in the UK to study Film Directing. Our teaching aims to help foster each student's identity as a film-maker. We don't have a formula: we know we have to keep asking what works, why it works, what we need to say.
Students benefit from workshops and master classes provided by two main bodies: the Scottish Documentary Institute, based at the College, and Edinburgh Skillset Screen and Media Academy/Screen Academy Scotland. Recent visitors to the department include producer Andrew MacDonald and film-maker Nick Broomfield.
Students go on to have careers including: producer, director, writer, production or location manager, researcher, editor, assistant director, cinematographer, journalist. Related fields include community video, academia or film development agencies.
