Course summary

Our leading film scholars and award-winning filmmakers will help you build a strong foundation for a career in film. You will explore film history, theory and production, and learn about the latest trends in digital and 3D cinema.Our Film BA is both practical and theoretical. It covers everything from fiction to documentary, experimental film to world cinema, television to the internet, as well as screenwriting, animation and cinematography. You'll look beyond the story and consider how meaning is created through film language and visual aesthetics. You'll broaden and deepen your critical awareness of the diverse formal and experiential possibilities of cinema, both as they have developed in the past and as they are transforming in the contemporary moment.Right from your first term you'll be introduced to the use of video equipment, group work, key roles of the production team and facilities, and you will produce a short drama on digital video. As you move through the course you will be able to pick to focus on the theoretical study of film or the practical side of film. If you can't decide and enjoy both, you can continue to give both equal weighting. Students who choose the film production route have the opportunity to screen their film at the British Film Institute, Southbank (BFI) at the end of their third year.We currently offer a module on career preparation, which will enable you to understand different career choices, refine your career interests, evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses and learn how to present a creditable application. There's also an opportunity to undertake a work placement in any area of the creative industries: TV, film, on-line and print media, arts and campaign organisations, museums, art galleries, theatres and community projects.Being located in London means you'll be studying film whilst immersing yourself in the creative culture of the capital at film festivals, studios, galleries and pop-up cinemas. Whilst on campus, you'll have access to state-of-the-art film, editing, and studio facilities, including sound and dubbing equipment.
