Course description

This course offers you the opportunity to develop a range of analytical and creative skills by studying the British and American film industry, whilst also producing your own creative work.

You can expect to study a range of film genres such as horror, science fiction and social satire, in addition to analysing the role of film stars, how films are produced and marketed, and the differences between the British and American film industries. You will also analyse film experiences, through topics such as ‘Empowering Women’ and ‘Urban Stories’, and study the emotional impact of popular cinema on audiences, at an advanced level.
