What will we be talking about?

Watch some of the best of our student films including:

* Don't Feed The Ducks Steve tries to take his mother out for the day, but she argues with him at every turn.

* In Their Shoes The idea was very simple, but the end product captures the emotions and effects of online bullying.

* Auri Night 13 Auri is a mystical journey coming straight from the stories of Patrick Rothfuss.

* Knocked About Knocked About is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl starting out in a new town.

We'll also give you a virtual tour of our facilities including our on-campus film studio.

In your first year you will learn how to handle all the key roles in the film industry, the jobs you see in feature film credits. In the second year you choose one area to specialise in and work on a variety of projects both in our dedicated 3000sq ft film studio and on location. In the third year you’ll devise your own projects, or undertake work experience, while all the time working in your chosen specialism.

The course is intensely practical and you will spend the majority of your time actually making films, often working as part of a crew of 35 - exactly how it is done in the industry.

What will I be studying?

Lights, camera, action... scripting, storyboarding, sound, set design, editing. Do it all and choose your specialism. The Manchester Film School is the only film school in the North West and over the last five years has established itself as a centre of excellence. Our students have gone on to work on everything from the Bond films to Harry Potter with stars from Angelina Jolie to Brad Pitt. The course is intensely practical and you will spend the majority of your time actually making films, working as part of a crew - exactly how it is done in the industry.
