The School of Film & Television is a specialist facility at Falmouth University committed to providing a space for creative thought in screen-related practice and scholarship, providing the knowledge and confidence for students of all backgrounds to develop, contribute and lead in roles that reflect upon a thriving global screen sector, and the world beyond it. 700 undergraduates and 100 postgraduates study screen practice in animation, film, television, and visual effects, focused on the creation of screen media work using professional-standard studios, software and equipment, serviced through a specialist store and technical staff. Teaching contextualises these skills, celebrates and promotes ambition, and is most significant in the development in ‘soft’ skills of critical thinking, communication, collaboration sought after by employers both in the sector, and beyond it.
The school is a member of CILECT, is Screenskills certified, and has ARRI, Albert and AVID educational partnerships. It is home to the Sound/Image Cinema Lab, whose feature credits in production and coproduction include the commercially released Wilderness (2017), Songbird (2018), Bait (2019), Make Up (2019), The Tape (2001), Long Way Back (2021), Enys Men (2022) - https://www.falmouth.ac.uk/research/programmes/pedagogy-futures/cinema-lab - all offering placement opportunities for students, working with staff and other industry professionals.
