Course summary

By studying Film, you develop an informed, critical, analytical and creative approach to understanding film as a cultural and aesthetic expressive medium. This involves examining how forms of film have emerged, as well as striving to understanding the historical, social and cultural contexts of films. You take a similar approach when examining the past – working with a variety of texts and sources (including the visual) to understand events and perspectives in their proper context. Both subjects follow a modular structure allowing students to tailor their studies to their own interests. In 2014, the University opened a new 62-seat cinema named after the pioneering female film director Ida Lupino, which students can enjoy as part of their experience during their studies. The Lupino has state-of-the-art digital projection and sound, and has been created to provide an intimate atmosphere for film viewing.
