Pursue your passion for films with leading academics and have the chance to apply what you learn through practical filmmaking. You will study film from the late nineteenth century to the modern day, including world cinema, avant-garde and experimental filmmaking. You will also explore the cinema of classical and contemporary Hollywood, together with new forms of digital entertainment and video art. Alongside this, you will investigate television from its origins in the mid-twentieth century to contemporary engagements with new media and digital platforms, from soap opera to sitcom to sci-fi, exploring questions of authorship, genre and audience. The focus is on your development into a critically informed filmmaker. You will gain academic knowledge and practical skills, with opportunities to direct films and television programmes in the final two years.
