M.A. International Film Business

The University of Exeter | Exeter , United Kingdom
The world-class graduate degree that puts you right inside the international film business. The MA International Film Business unites the London Film School, the worlds key postgraduate filmmaking school, with the University of Exeters Film department and Business School. The partnership brings together unique film production and market expertise and exceptional research and teaching on film culture and history.



This MA combines high level teaching skills with a unique practitioner-driven industry access programme, providing students with the key business tools and contacts needed to build a career in film.

The ambitious team behind the MA is dedicated to training a new generation of producers and executives that brings both excellence and innovation into the film industry beyond Hollywood. By analysing the horizontal and vertical structures that shape the film industry, in tandem with changing patterns of users and digital technology, this programme explores both the existing international film industry while also embracing the current high levels of disruption and restructuring. Taught in London and the South-West, the programme includes a networking placement; industry mentoring supported by an advisory committee of leading UK and European film industry professionals; a research trip to the Berlin Film Festival; and an opportunity to work on an London Film School graduation film as a producer.

Students are benefitting from £380m of investment in facilities social as well as academic timed to come on stream at just this moment. This has translated into its highest ever league table ranking (seventh) and outstanding ratings from students for teaching quality, assessment and feedback. More than four in five leave with a first or 2:1 and very few drop out. It is not hard to see why.'
