Course description

With our unique balance of film theory and practice, weâ??ll give you the critical and creative skills you need to make your own films. Youâ??ll even get to see them screened at a professional arts venue, and graduate with a portfolio that will catch the eye of future employers. Our unique Film Studies course will give you a solid grounding in film history and theory, whilst encouraging you to put your critical knowledge to work on your own creative projects. Youâ??ll be introduced to a wide spectrum of approaches to the moving image, and develop your own particular interests with specialist subjects like film practice, film reviewing, film theory, and screenwriting. On our theory-based modules youâ??ll explore film-making practices and critical approaches from all over the world, spanning the history of cinema from the avant-garde through to Hollywood blockbusters. But youâ??ll also get the chance to make explorative, creative, and independent short films in video, animation, or 16 mm formats, preparing you for work within the film industry. In the final year your major project will be screened in the graduation show at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse, a professional public cinema.
