Film Studies A Level at Vision West Nottinghamshire College
The A Level in film studies will give you a broader knowledge of film and the cinema industry from around the world.
Film is the dominant art form of the 21st century, both reflecting and influencing society and culture. Learning to read films as more than a form of entertainment will develop your skills in analysis and interpretation.
This A Level will cover national cinema, film movements and styles and the language of film.
Visits to the cinema, and other course related places such as the National Media Museum, are planned to ensure that students gain a wider perspective of the film industry.
Core units will cover exploring film form, British and American film, film research and creative projects and issues and debates.
Five GCSEs with at least 4 points (grade C) including English language/literature (or combined English).
You will need to attend an interview with the tutor before being accepted on to the course.
This course is assessed primarily by examination scheduled for May/June with some additional coursework assessment.
A career in media would be open to you upon completion of this A Level. Specific employment could include journalism, film critic, scriptwriter, researcher or a role in film production.
Access to degrees in cultural studies, creative writing, media studies, film production, social science or film and television studies, are all options for you upon completion of the Film Studies A Level.
