University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh College of Art
The Edinburgh College of Art postgraduate degree is part of the University of Edinburgh and specializes in documentary films. This program takes a project-led, practice-based approach to studying. It integrates analysis of contemporary film practice with practical filmmaking. Students choose to make a creative documentary or a “hybrid” film that defies genre definition and pushes the boundaries of narrative. The program encourages ways of working as a film community with inspiration from international visiting filmmakers and support from a team of documentary practitioners. The college works closely with the Scottish Documentary Institute, the university’s internationally acclaimed research center in documentary filmmaking.
