    Gain the skills that employers are looking for. Created alongside industry, our Film Production course is guided by the needs of film professionals.

    • Collaborate with industry partners, including key players Films@59 and The Bottle Yard Studios, Bristol.
    • Learn a distinctive, sector-leading, practice-based curriculum – based on current trends and forecasts.
    • Work with real clients on real briefs to hone your creativity, gain professional experience and stack specialist technical skills.

    Due to Covid-19, we have made some changes to teaching and learning for the 2020-21 academic year: we have blended high-quality virtual engagement with in-person teaching on campus when possible. Blended learning will continue to some extent in the 2021-22 academic year and we will continue to keep the situation under review in light of ongoing Government guidance. If you’re planning on joining us in September 2021 we will communicate with you about specific details of how your course is taught nearer the time.


    Learn key skills in all aspects of the film industry. This course aims to enable you to reach the professional standards required by employers. Alongside practical, theoretical and industry-standard technical skills, there will be a real focus on working professionally, collaboration and communicating ideas, all of which will be fundamental to your employability once you graduate.

    This course has been created with direct input from boomsatsuma’s industry partners in television and film – all of whom will be actively engaged in its delivery. You'll learn in small and intensively taught classes, and will specialise in one of two pathways – Production or Post Production – throughout your three years on the course.

    BA (Hons) Filmmaking is taught at boomsatsuma in Bristol, which became a UNESCO City of Film in 2017 due to its extensive production and media culture in television and film.
