This three-year programme takes a comprehensive approach to the “script-to- screen” method of filmmaking, where students begin their studies with the basics of idea development right up to producing and showing work of their own. Cinematic Arts students are taught to merge theory and practice as well as work on short films, ranging from narrative fiction film and documentary to music video and interactive and experimental moving images.

Mentorship from full-time lecturers and industry professionals accelerates the synergy of theory and practice and stimulate critical reflection, intellectual growth and interpersonal communication; thus helping students to realise their personal goals and develop into well rounded members of our increasingly global society.
