The School of Film & Television Guest Lectures
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.
