The School of Film & Television Guest Lectures

Kim Longinotto in discussion.

The School of Film & Television's programme of masterclasses and workshops brings high-profile film, television and animation practitioners, and scholars to Falmouth to deliver talks to our undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Billed as career masterclasses and embedded in the curriculum, the series encourages students to think about roles across film, television, animation and beyond. Each speaker provides an insight into what it takes to be a successful member of the professional film and television community. Our guests speak to all aspects of development and production.

Selected visitors include Adam Gough (Editor, Da 5 Bloods, Roma), Intimacy Coordinators Ita O’Brien (and Abigail Kessel (I May Destroy You, Normal People), Academy Award-winning sound recordist Mark Ulano (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), cinematographers Laurie Rose (Archive, Rebecca) and Vanessa Whyte (Ted Lasso), dubbing mixer Emma Butt (Year of the Dog), production designer Joel Collins (His Dark Materials, Black Mirror), legendary title designer Dan Perri (Star Wars), not to mention an array of award-winning producers including Dionne Walker (The Hard Stop), Emily Morgan (Supernova, Make Up), and Kat Mansoor (Cow, Rebellion).

We celebrate indie filmmaking at Falmouth. An array of celebrated writers and directors have visited including; Sarah Gavron (Rocks), Prano Bailey Bond (Censor), Alice Lowe (Prevenge), Felicity Evans (His House), Tyler Taormina (Ham on Rye), Ben Wheatley (High Rise, A Field in England), Rob Savage (Host, Dash Cam), Anna Biller (The Love Witch), Lucy Brydon (Body of Water), Scott Barley (Sleep Has Her House), Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller, Christine Molloy (Rose Plays Julie, Further Beyond), and Toby Haynes (Andor, Black Mirror, Sherlock).
