The master’s programme of the Netherlands Film Academy is a unique two-year international and highly selective research programme for filmmakers and artists with at least five years of professional experience. Every year we accept a maximum of ten student-researchers into our programme, who come from different parts of the world and thus bring a great variety of cultural and professional perspectives to the programme. Once graduated, many of the alumni remain actively connected to the programme.

The focus of the programme is on Artistic Research in and through Cinema. It implies thinking through images and sounds, starting the inquiry from the practice, knowledge and perspectives of filmmaking, and using its accompanying concepts and language. This practice-driven programme, with its four thematic semesters that together outline the rhythm and line of questioning inherent to artistic research in and through cinema, privileges questions over answers, process over product, experimentation over mere execution and long-term effects over short term gain. Essential to the pedagogical philosophy of the programme is also its emphasis on peer- and group learning and on the value of education as a space of learning for all.
