Lianne Veenstra
“This programme is unique in the Netherlands”

“Since I have always been interested in film, arts in general, culture, and history, the choice to study film at the Arts, Culture and Media department at the University of Groningen was an easy one to make. This track is unique in The Netherlands because it provides a multi- and interdisciplinary perspective on the study of arts and its contexts.

...
If you didn't go on an exchange in the third year of your Bachelor, then you will get another chance to do so in your Master. In the second semester of my Master, I went on an Erasmus exchange with Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne for six months. I can highly recommend taking part in an exchange programme because it is an extremely valuable experience and gives you the possibility to study your art form or discipline in another country.”

[T]he staff was most approachable and helped me to develop my own ideas, elevating them to a level I had previously not thought possible."

“If you're looking to study Film from a multidisciplinary perspective aided by expert teachers challenging you to develop your own ideas, I can highly recommend the Film and Media Studies program in Groningen. I highly valued the interaction between students and staff. In my experience, the staff was most approachable and helped me to develop my own ideas, elevating them to a level I had previously not thought possible.""The FCAM programme in Groningen encourages students to pursue an internship...
And of course, getting your foot in the door is half the battle!”

"The Film and Media Studies program was a way to use my already existing love for film, and mold that into a theoretical framework."

“For me, studying in the Film and Media Studies program was a way to use my already existing love for film, and mould that into a theoretical framework. I was challenged to dismantle movies, and put them together again. I still use these academic theories and techniques in my work as a film critic. You learn to watch film in another, elaborate way.”

“Studying film in Groningen gives you so many opportunities to broaden and/or deepen your interest in the field."

“Studying film in Groningen gives you so many opportunities to broaden and/or deepen your interest in the field. Attending the Summer Film School in Antwerp, volunteering at the university's film archive and enjoying the support of dedicated staff members really helped channel my career orientation.”
Alexandra Gheorghe
The film MA can be used as a kaleidoscope: I myself looked through it to discover the various facets, forms, and tints that define hands-on experiences when fuelled by academic insights.

"The MA in Film and Contemporary Audiovisual Media helped me to find the right balance between academic studies and creative work. The MA shaped my intellectual and academic inclinations whilst constantly encouraging me to use this knowledge for the investigation of hands-on experiences. This duality reached its peak during my theoretical and practical internship at the EYE Film Institute where I unpacked apparatuses and shot a documentary about editing tables...
All the more so, my paper proposals and creative interests have always been supported by teachers and supervisors with fruitful feedback sessions."
