Fantasy film premières at the University with a master's degree

One of the driving forces behind today's audiovisual sector is fantasy film. Many of the films linked to the genre form part of the collective cultural imagination. These films also have a huge turnover. Avatar made $2.788 billion worldwide, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a little over $2.068 billion, and Jurassic World, around $1.7 billion. As well as a good script, experts stress that the key to success is constant innovation in the genre and the ability of professionals to generate new ideas and projects. This is the main reason for creating the Master's Degree in Contemporary Fiction and Fantasy Film launched jointly by the UOC and the Sitges Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya.
