About International Film Business at London Film School

The MA International Film Business unites the London Film School, the world’s key postgraduate filmmaking school, with the University of Exeter’s Film department and Business School. The marriage brings together unique film production and market expertise and exceptional research and teaching on film culture and history. This MA combines high level teaching skills with a unique practitioner-driven industry access programme, providing students with the key business tools and contacts needed to build a career in film.

Unlike existing film-related degrees, this new MA explores the entire film business, embracing world and national cinema(s), non-Hollywood independent film production, financing, sales, distribution and marketing, alongside programming, exhibition and digital strategies for the future.

The ambitious team behind the MAIFB is dedicated to training a new generation of both producers and executives that will bring both excellence and innovation into the film industry beyond Hollywood. By analyzing the horizontal and vertical structures that shape the film industry, in tandem with changing patterns of users and digital technology, this course explores both the existing international film industry while also embracing the current high levels of disruption and restructuring.

Taught in London and the South-West, the MAIFB includes a networking placement programme; industry mentoring supported by an advisory committee of leading UK and European film industry professionals; a research trip to the Berlin Film Festival; and an opportunity to work on an LFS graduation film as a producer.
