The Director's Cut presents a series of discussions staged at the University of Aberdeen's Kings College campus with well-known and innovative international filmmakers and broadcasters. We also run our Director's Cut Masterclasses and community outreach events, where students and guests have an opportunity to hear first-hand about topics on the film industry from leading professionals. Past Director's Cuts have included Sir David Attenborough, Nicholas Roeg, John Akomfrah, Raul Ruiz, Alex Cox, Kevin MacDonald and many others.  

The series is organised by the Film and Visual Culture Department, coordinated by the Events Team of the Office of External Affairs and given technical support by the Web Team and the AV Unit, which also film the events. It is open to the public and admission is usually free. We invite you to view the webcasts and to explore the rest of the site.
