Film Studies A Level at Queen Mary's College

Course description

The Film Studies course at AS level investigates British and American cinema. Students explore the film industry, learn how to analyse films, and develop creative production skills. Prospective students must enjoy films, but also want to learn about them and their social context. There is a significant coursework element (40%) which requires students to write a detailed analysis of a chosen film sequence and create a short film, storyboard or screenplay. Students who are not technically inclined needn't worry, as the course has a significant written component. In the A2 year, students will explore a range of films from around the world and investigate a variety of film making styles. English GCSE at grade 'C' or above is essential.
