The �DOCNOMADS� Documentary Film Directing Erasmus Mundus Masters Course
The �DOC NOMADS� is a two-year documentary film directing Erasmus Mundus Master Course, implemented by three European universities:
- Universidade Lusofona de Humanidades e Tecnologias/Lisbon/Portugal,
- Szinhaz- es Filmmuveszeti Egyetem/University of Theatre and Film Arts/Budapest/Hungary,
-LUCA, College Sint Lukas Brussels/Belgium
DOC NOMADS aims at developing students� basic skills in techniques, fieldwork and writing, as well as their creative filmmaking and managing skills in an international production environment within the framework of a truly integrated training that marry traditional European art education and modern studies based on the film, media and new media industry�s requirements.
The basic underlying idea is that the students are immersed into different cultures and social environments which make them more sensitive to different documentary practices, ways of communication enhancing their capabilities to work outside their own cultural contexts; therefore mobility from Lisbon to Brussels via Budapest is compulsory for all students.
DOC NOMADS is open to European and non-European students with a BA degree in Motion Picture or Media Studies; other degrees are accepted for applicants with a convincing portfolio. In order to guarantee a high-quality individual training, small group tuition is offered (maximum 24 students).
