  • Experimental Film 1960-2000

  • Students are also required to individually produce a short film (of between 4 and 5 minutes duration) and write an evaluation of their film (of between 1600 and 1800 words).

Film is one of the main cultural innovations of the 20th Century and a major art form of the last one hundred years. Film Studies offers the opportunity to investigate how film works as both a medium of representation which reflects our culture and society and as an aesthetic medium.

The course has elements that focus on both analytical and creative skills. As such, students will be expected to develop their ability to study independently, whilst honing their research skills and essay writing in preparation for the final exam, as well as showing an ability to create film products.
