EPAS is the shortened version of a planned but postponed two-year MA in Sound, with a certificate as the outcome. The international programme is organised by KASK School of Arts and the Netherlands Film Academy among others. Festival International du Film d'Aubagne and Film Fest Ghent are associated partners of the EPAS consortium.
