"Had the beautiful Ms. Reville not accepted a lifetime contract without options as Mrs. Alfred Hitchcock some 53 years ago, Mr. Alfred Hitchcock might be in this room tonight, not at this table but as one of the slower waiters on the floor. I share my award, as I have my life, with her." -
Studying Film as a subject offers you an exciting opportunity to revisit films you love and discover those you've yet to see, getting under their skin to consider their content, context and construction. You will develop skills in film analysis, and an understanding of films, their history and their contexts, which are of value in a wide range of careers (including teaching and journalism).
In your first year you learn how to critque and analyse the films you love to watch, preparing you with the skills and experience to apply theories, and your own knowledge to create compelling arguements.
European Cinema. In your second year you will be exploring the aesthetics of European Cinemas.
Film Production. You put your knowledge to the test, by planning, shooting and editing your very own short film.
US CINEMA is explored in your final year, from the start and the current climate of Hollywood. Or take a leap and study TV Drama where you study shows like Luther, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.
Film is taught by published academics who are frontiers of their field, inlcuding Steven Peacock and Darren Elliot-Smith.
Second year students who produced a short video during Film Production! The theme for that year was to creatively display mental illness.
