School of Film & Television

We’ve taught filmmaking at Falmouth for over 50 years. Our state-of-the-art kit and facilities, placement opportunities, industry connections and sheer enthusiasm for telling stories help us produce award-winning, employable graduates.

Students filming in a studio

Focusing on getting you into the film and television industry, we offer an immersive and demanding experience across the full range of creative production roles and responsibilities - in both the technical and conceptual aspects of filmmaking.

You can work on real paid jobs from our creative film agency MAYN, or get a role on one of our in-house micro-budget feature films while you study.

Our honorary fellows include the founders of Aardman Animation, Peter Lord and David Sproxton, Black Mirror and Doctor Who director Toby Haynes, and film producer and BFI executive Mary Burke.
