Erasmus Mundus Master in Animation Film
RE:Anima / 120 ECTS / 2 year - Genk - Lisbon - Espoo
Campus Genk / C-mine


International Master / Joint Master Degree

RE:ANIMA is an International two-year master programme in Animation Film, as a colloboration between LUCA campus C-mine Genk (Belgium), Aalto University (Finland) and Lusófona University (Portugal). RE:ANIMA explores all fields of animation, from fiction narrative to documentary and experimental uses of animation in expanded fields.


The program has an original mobility scheme that takes the students on an educational and creative journey from Belgium, where they will explore the foundations of narrative animation filmmaking, to Finland, where they will strengthen their technical and artistic animation skills and experiment with the craft, to Portugal, where they will use the tools of animation to depict and reflect upon reality, using the processes of animation as a form of documenting the world and act upon it.
Throughout the four semesters the students will acquire differentiated competences, explore diverse methods and approaches, while at the same time working on their graduation animation projects. These projects can take the form of fiction, documentary or experimental animation of a various nature that combine techniques and multidisciplinary approaches.

About LUCA School of Arts

LUCA School of Arts is the only University of Applied Sciences (and Arts ) in Flanders exclusively dedicated to art and design, making it unique in the region. As a School of Arts LUCA combines the strengths and expertise of five renowned Flemish higher education institutions for art and design, spread across Brussels, Genk, Ghent and Leuven. LUCA also gives form to the associated Faculty of Arts  of the KU Leuven which is an intensive collaboration between LUCA School of Arts and KU Leuven. Whereas LUCA, as a college, is responsible for bachelor and master degrees in the arts, KU Leuven, as a university, is authorized for doctorates. Artistic research is therefore situated at a crossroads, which explains the faculty's associated status. It is an "in-between space", in which the assets of the School of Arts and the Research University reinforce each other. LUCA participates as such on the open day of the KU Leuven. LUCA will be presenting its even full-English MA programmes on its campuses in Brussels, Genk, Ghent and Leuven.
