Extra opportunities

For students looking for an extra challenge in addition to their Master's, there are several options. 

European University Film Award

The Master’s programme in Film and Television Cultures is Dutch partner in the European University Film Award. EUFA is an initiative of Filmfest Hamburg and the European Film Academy and is organised annually since 2016.

Each year five films from five European countries are nominated for the European University Film Award. Students of Film and Television Cultures are invited to participate in the viewings and discussions of these films. This Utrecht EUFA group will select their favourite film and chose the Dutch student delegate to participate in the three-day international conference in Hamburg. The winner of the university award will be announced during the European Film Awards weekend.
