About the programme

Film studies is not about film alone, but about connections between cinema, society, and technology, and the way we experience and view stories on the screen. The degree investigates visual representation in our global society and the place that film has in communicating ideas, attitudes and cultural beliefs, both mainstream and alternative, across different countries and periods.

In this programme you learn to ‘read’ film, visual images and the cinematic experience. You learn to analyse and present arguments with a critical awareness of the varied forms that texts and visual images can take. You also explore the important connections between different national institutions and identities and their representations in film and visual culture.
