Manchester School of Art is a pioneer of art and design education in the UK and offers a broad range of architecture, art, design, media and theatre courses.

Experimentation and collaboration are at the heart of what we do and our award-winning Benzie Building, opened last year on our 175th anniversary, confirms this approach – encouraging staff and students to work across disciplines and explore common ground.

Our heritage demonstrates a strong connection to the cultural identity and economic development of Manchester and we remain committed to helping the City to be internationally competitive. Manchester has always been a city where innovation was encouraged and it is our mission to help this to continue.

The BA Hons Filmmaking Programme at Manchester School of Art is a practice-based course with an art school ethos designed to help students experiment, innovate and expand their creative potential within all of the possibilities of filmmaking practice. With a strong craft, creative and conceptual approach our programme’s curriculum design provides learners with the opportunities to explore specific roles and pursue interests in fiction, factual and artist filmmaking practices. We are actively engaged in developing and expanding the practice of filmmaking.
