Film Studies A-Level explores how the language of film has an impact on our responses, and how understanding the context of a film’s production enhances the way we think about the film itself. You will study films from America, Europe and beyond, and investigate how developments in filmmaking have affected our experiences of film viewing. You will learn in a classroom with an interactive 4K screen, have access to digital film making and editing equipment, you may even have the opportunity to visit Hollywood in Los Angeles as part of your studies.
Many of our Film students’ progress onto university courses in related areas such as Film and Media Production, Journalism and Film Studies.
