A Level Film Studies at Theale Green School

Course description

Film studies is a course designed to deepen your understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of film; the major art form of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. As a student of Film Studies you will study Cinema as a medium, as an art form and as a social and economic institution. You will engage with a wide range of different kinds of films, developing skills of observation, critical analysis and personal reflection.

The Film Studies course is both practical and theoretical. You will learn how to analyse films through perspectives such as genre, while understanding how film-makers create meaning with camera work, lighting, editing, sound and other elements. You will use this understanding to create your own film projects and you will study and compare particular films in detail. You will also study the finance, production and distribution of films in the international film industry.
