Film Studies

Study film in London – one of the world's principal hubs for media and communication, with a thriving film and cinema culture. Discover more at one of our Open Days.

Film Studies demands creative, original thought. It asks you to question, for example, how class, race, ethnicity and sexuality are represented on the screen, and to think about the impact of changing technologies on film.

It also introduces you, through practical modules, to the creative and technical skills required for scriptwriting, production managing, directing and editing, giving you a crucial insight into the fundamental aspects of filmmaking.

Our students have gone onto careers in a wide range of sectors, and we have close links with local communities and organisations, including regular collaboration with the East End Film Festival.

Film Studies gives you a chance to grow and test your understanding; I personally enjoy the course because we cover different styles of world cinema. The course covers not only famous films, but also highlights many films not so highly acclaimed or regarded. There are many opportunities to deepen and strengthen your knowledge which helps you to focus where to specialise as you progress through the course.
