In a world where competition for work and recognition is fierce, a postgraduate film degree from a British University can make a difference.  Add the fact that creative industries are becoming increasingly diverse, it’s more important than ever to stand out from the crowd. Many of our M.A. students use this degree to specialize in a craft or skill, or develop their own creative project using the revolutionary techniques we champion.

University programs and film schools world-wide pigeon-hole students into traditional boxes like ‘director’, ‘producer’ or ‘screenwriter’, without recognising how rapidly the film industry is changing, or understanding how quickly what it means to be a filmmaker. Marketing, distribution, filmmaker brand development, audience building are the new knowledge areas.

Current Raindance Postgraduate Film Degree students are studying screenwriting, directing and producing as in other film schools and degree programs, but there’s a difference: Raindance Postgraduate students also make narrative films, documentaries, webseries, TV, digital media, VR/360, Interactive, transmedia and more. And they make these projects while studying the new context of financing, producing and distributing their content.   In this programme, every student charts his or her own course.

The range of our student work is as varied as our students. Over 150 students all over the world are enrolled in the Raindance Postgraduate Film Degree. That’s over 150 different perspectives and angles to look at developing knowledge, competency and a career: from traditional features and shorts, to documentaries from war zones; from digital distribution to online video campaigns to eradicate violence or expose ignorance. From traditionally funded business models to those funded using social media and digital outreach to develop audiences for specific films. From local community models of filmmaking to global cloud collaborations. Our question to you is: What’s your big idea? How can the M.A. help you realize it?

Do you think a self-directed M.A. film degree is right for you?
