The University of Bristol has a long-standing reputation for innovation and excellence in the study of film and television. In the late 1960s, Professor George Brandt introduced film and television studies to the University curriculum and the subject has been taught at Bristol ever since. In our Department of Film and Television, guided by leading scholars and practitioners, you will explore the history of film and television, consider theoretical perspectives, appreciate how films are made and engage in practical film-making activities. As well as being trained in scholarly investigation and critical thinking, you will work collaboratively in groups and develop skills relevant to a range of careers. Throughout your studies you will encounter a range of film and television professionals, and in your final year of study you will have the chance to undertake a placement in creative industry.
