Kingston School of Art is the place for creative film study. BA (Hons) Filmmaking students develop skills and acumen in film production within the context of a leading film and photography department, ready for an expanded film sector where there is a need for freelance industry professionals, independent productions and artist filmmakers. Our MA Experimental Film is the UK’s foremost programme for artists’ moving image, incorporating experimental approaches and independent short film production. The culture of film at Kingston extends to practice-based film research (PhD) students and award-winning staff.
Artist-filmmaker Phillip Warnell heads up our STOP PLAY RECORD team with the support of Anne Katherine Bindesbøll, Richard Squires and other filmmaking faculty. Our commissioned STOP PLAY RECORD films are distinguished by a creative process, of bespoke mentoring, critical reflection and expert executive production, also providing access to Kingston’s bespoke production and post-production facilities at its Knights Park campus. The filmmakers tap into an excellent practice-based, theoretical and alumni network via our department, which is well connected throughout the artists’ moving image community, especially to LUX, BFI, Film London and Tate Film.
