The Section of Film Studies and Creative Media Industries brings together scholars, teachers and students with an interest in film studies from the silent film era to the current film and media landscape. The focus is on film, TV and visual digital storytelling as art and cultural practice, based on theories about e.g. narration, aesthetics and cognition.

The section also works with production, distribution, exhibition and promotion in the creative media industries and at specific cultural institutions, from idea development, innovation strategies and strategic communication related to new productions and projects to their circulation, target groups and reception in a time marked by cross-media formats and new platforms. The section has a close collaboration with the Nordic film and media industries as well as a number of public and private partners.
