Combine your love of film and drama. Use our industry-standard equipment and fantastic studio spaces to create high-quality film and live performance work – and get the practical skills you need to work in the film and theatre industries.
This course is a fascinating mix of drama and film, of practical work and theory.
Our Drama modules focus on 20th-century and contemporary performance practice. You’ll work on public productions as well as smaller scale projects – sometimes alongside students from other courses, developing collaborative approaches to your creative work.
Meanwhile, our Film modules will allow you to investigate the process of film-making and the way that different people have approached it all over the world, throughout the history of cinema. You’ll make explorative, creative short films in video, animation or 16mm formats, and develop your particular interests with our specialist subjects such as film reviewing, film theory and screenwriting.
You’ll even have the chance to show your film and performance works at professional public arts venues such as the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse, Cambridge Junction or Wysing Arts Centre.
