MA in Screenwriting Application Period Started
MA in Screenwriting is a joint masters programme arranged by University of Salford (Manchester, UK) and TAMK University of Applied Sciences (Tampere, Finland).
The programme wishes to develop film scripts that are innovative and creative but which are also commercially viable. For appropriate film scripts the School has the capacity to assist in developing production contacts at the Berlin Film Festival, Cannes and the American Film Market in Los Angeles.
Some short film scripts written in Finland will be produced by the Media Production programmes of Salford and Tampere.
The programme is taught entirely in English. Semester One will be taught in Tampere and Semester Two in Manchester. Semester Three, where the students write their MA Film Project, may be completed in either the UK or Finland.
The course will run from September 1st 2009 until December 30th 2010. Deadline for applications of Finnish students is May 18th 2009.
