The Director's Cut

The Director's Cut

The Director's Cut presents a series of discussions staged at the University of Aberdeen's King's College campus with well-known and innovative international filmmakers, broadcasters and visual artists. 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.

Created by Prof. Alan Marcus in the School of Language, Literature, Music and Visual Culture, series' events are often 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. The Director's Cut 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.
