Film Studies at Trinity Catholic College
The AS/A specification in Film Studies is designed to deepen your understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of film, the major art form of the twentieth century, and one developing new modes of expression and exhibition in the first decades of the twenty-first century. The specification builds on the cineliteracy you have developed informally since childhood.
In particular, the specification explores the relationship between the film and the individual by exploring how films create meanings and produce both intellectual and emotional responses.
In this course films are treated as texts would be in English. You are expected to analyse meaning in every element of film making. Therefore it is desired that you have a B grade in GCSE English Language. A command of the English Language and an ability to interpret meaning is important. The exam and aspects of the coursework will require you to write at length and in considerable depth.
