Film Studies A Level at New College Nottingham
Film is so much more than Saturday afternoon at the multiplex. Films give us a window into historical events, culture and changes in society from the
early 20th century right up to today.
Who are the prominent film-makers of the last 100 years, what was their motivation and can we still see their influence today? Are films purely for entertainment or are they made to tell us something about ourselves or the world around us? You’ll find the answers to all these questions and more if you study this course.
