Master, prove your mastery
During the master year you will work on your own final project. You will receive essential input via workshops, seminars and visits by Belgian and foreign filmmakers and audiovisual artists, plus continuous feedback from your individual mentor and other experts from the profession. With your final project, you can participate in international short film festivals and have the opportunity to be nominated, win prizes and grants.
The master project is central to the programme. You choose a topic, a research question and an objective. Under personal guidance you not only realise an artistic project, but also write a thesis in which you reflect upon your practice, methodology and ideas.
The master atelier provides a platform for discussing your work during one-to-one meetings with your tutors and in group discussions with and presentations to fellow students. Moreover, through guest lectures, study trips and portfolio viewings you will come in contact with experts in the different aspects of your specialisation. In this way you raise your practice to a professional artistic standard. Meanwhile, you will continue to feed your theoretical knowledge. Via intensive, small-scale seminars and public lectures you will be exposed to contemporary critical thinking about film and audiovisual culture and learn how to link theory with practice.
You graduate with a single screen work, which you will present to an external and often international jury.
In the master course, you will work for one year on your own final project as a film director. You will receive essential input via workshops, seminars and visits by Belgian and foreign filmmakers and audiovisual artists, plus continuous feedback from your individual mentor and other experts from the profession.
You will refine your skills to make films destined for cinema or art houses. Your own voice, imagination and signature are important for making your audiovisual creation irrefutably yours. With your final project, you can participate in international short film festivals and get the opportunity to be nominated and win prizes.
