The Master's in Film Studies at the University of Amsterdam is a unique one-year programme that offers a theoretically rigorous engagement with the field of film studies and visual culture.
Film Studies is situated within the internationally ranked Department of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam, which brings together renowned scholars from a variety of media and theoretical perspectives.The programme approaches the study of film as a multi-faceted phenomenon, one that plays a vital and ever-changing role in contemporary digital media culture.
The programme invites students to engage critically and creatively with the field through a series of core courses in film-philosophy, media archaeology, and (trans)national and global audiovisual practices. Students also take part in intensive research seminars that explore specialized topics related to the expertise of the core film faculty. These seminars address both classic and cutting-edge subjects, ranging from neuro-aesthetics, ethics, affect, fashion, body, and the politics of gender and identity, to classical film theory, multimodal metaphor, and the cinematic city.
With its many festivals, its rich cinematic tradition, its archives, museums and cultural institutions, Amsterdam offers the perfect setting for this programme. Please note, the Master's in Film Studies is not a Master's in Film Production.
