A Level Film Studies

Fancy being the next Quentin Tarantino or Christopher Nolan? Studying film could put you on the right path. Film Studies offers the chance to gain hands-on experience of film making and explore film language, history, theory and criticism.

Back to Media, Games and Photography

You will begin by exploring how aspects of film form and language are motivated for expressive effect. This includes an examination of the creative decisions involved in mise-en-scene, cinematography, editing, special effects and sound and a consideration of how the structuring concepts of narrative and genre control meaning and spectator response. Film contexts are also explored, examining how social, cultural, political, historical and institutional factors shape meaning. 

Where will it take me?

A qualification in Film Studies is highly valued by many universities and employers alike.
