The following are some of the teaching staff for the MA course. In addition to this list and alongside the staff across all areas of study, a wide range of visiting lecturers, guest speakers and panellists visit us regularly.

Nicola Gibson

Course Leader MA Documentary Filmmaking - Management team

Nicola worked at the BBC as a Documentary Producer/Director on many primetime series and strands in BBC Arts, Specialist Factual and Documentaries and as successful Development Producer. Her work was nominated for a Grierson Documentary Award, a Royal Television Award and ‘My Life As A Child’, won at five International Input Documentary Festivals. 

Her approach in all her work comes from her belief that documentary is ‘life shared on film’ and after leaving the BBC she worked in the independent sector for independents,including Ridley Scott Associates and The Garden.

She is also an experienced and qualified documentary lecturer in Higher Education and a Fellow of the Higher Education Authority. She  worked as a Visiting Lecturer for many years at City University, University of London Goldsmiths and Birkbeck, before joining London Film School.
