MFA with specialisation in Curator for Film and Video

One-year full-time programme (60 higher education credits)

The programme includes a full academic year (60 higher education credits). The language of education is Swedish but occasional lectures will be in English.

Master of Fine Arts in Film – with specialisation in Curator for Film and Video is intended for persons working with the accessibility of the image and film, or the cultural heritage.

The studies are based on an exploratory approach and aim to deepen the knowledge and ability to reflect upon issues concerning ethics, aesthetics, structure, visualisation, spatial contextualisation and social intention in relation to cultural development and visual communication. The objective of the studies is to broaden the view of film and video shown and presented in the public space and develop new platforms for these types of showings. Studies also aim to explore the image's potential in an educational context.

The studies also focus on the entrepreneurial activity of identifying possibilities and creating resources to realize your ideas. The programme has a specialisation in film and video but expands the concept towards more general visualisation and social progress through curating.

The Master of Fine Arts is research preparatory.

The studies are located at the Film unit on Storgatan 43, but seminars may be held at other locations in Sweden and partially abroad.

To be eligible to apply you need a Bachelor's degree of Arts in media, fine arts, film or film studies and you need at least 180 credits or a similar documented experience of working with production within one or several of these fields. This knowledge and these skills are tested during the enrollment process.

The programme will lead to a Degree of Master of Fine Arts (60 credits) in Film – with specialisation in Curator for Film and Video, provided that the student passes the courses of the programme and meets other formal requirements.

The Valand Academy is part of the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts, which enables the possibility of cooperation with other programmes and institutions.


Apply on the web at www.antagning.se no later than March 15th 2017. Also the applicant shall send work samples to the Valand Academy. You can find all information on how to apply at the Swedish webbpage>>

A selection of applicants is chosen after an assessment of the work samples has been done. If necessary, interviews will be conducted.

Strong emphasis is put on the applicant’s ability to run, communicate and realize a process and his or her ability to realize projects individually as well as in a group. Previous experience of curating is a plus.
