Our BA (Hons) Film and Screenwriting degree will develop your skills across key film studies and screenwriting debates and conventions. You will be taught by noted film scholars and established practitioners, who will provide their knowledge of international film and television screenwriting perspectives. This course will teach you to consider a wide range of ‘script to screen’ traditions from theory, practice and industry perspectives. You will gain an understanding of Hollywood cinema and television conventions and screenwriting genres (such as romcom, thriller, science fiction and horror case studies). You will also be introduced to other international traditions that range from European cinema and television to smartphone filmmaking and beyond. Focusing on the aesthetic and creative aspects of film and television screenwriting, you’ll consider storytelling techniques, narratology and screen adaptation. Modules such as Film Primer and Film Entrepreneurship provide core skills relevant to the film industry. You will have opportunities to work on established film festivals that are associated with the course and have access to film collections that will enrich your course of studies.
