Film Studies at East Leake Academy

Course description

Why do we enjoy fi lm so much? Why should we study film?

Film is the major mass art form of the 21st Century and the future looks set to see it grow. Film is an integral part of our culture. It is not only fascinating to look at how fi lms are constructed and how they affect us, but also to ask what they tell us about our society, our understanding of the world around us and how this differs from nation to nation and culture to culture.

In Film Studies we will be studying cinema in all its diversity from animation to classics, from horror to comedy.

We will look at how fi lm communicates meaning, how it is produced and how it impacts on us as individuals and as a society.

Film Studies will be strongly focussed on the study of a range of films and an examination of the industry - its stars, directors, critics and producers.
