French filmmaker, Aislinn Belot benefited from undertaking University of the West of Scotland’s popular MA Filmmaking programme.

Aislinn, who graduated from UWS last year, worked at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will soon be relocating to Canada where she hopes to further advance her filmmaking career.

The University’s MA Filmmaking is designed to support those who wish to work professionally in the film industry either in fiction, documentary or experimental filmmaking, including immersive virtual reality productions.

Aislinn said: “I remember doing my online research for filmmaking courses in Scotland and being disappointment as a lot of them seemed to be just theory based. When I found out about the MA Filmmaking at UWS I was delighted as most of the course is practical and sees students applying their skills by making films.

I had a great time studying at UWS. As much as you are independent and autonomous in your own time and work, I thought the support and motivation I got from my tutors was great.

“The course is delivered not just at the University’s Ayr Campus but also Film City in Glasgow, which is in the heart of Scotland’s film industry. I used to love going there for our classes. Just being in the building where some of the big production companies work was a thrill.
