Since the introduction of cinema, film has been used as a unique platform to educate, entertain and inspire its audiences. This course is about taking films seriously, discovering the industry from a number of perspectives and projecting its future. By focusing on the broader study of film history, aesthetics and theory, you will examine a range of critical approaches to film, investigating developments in American and British cinema from their origins to the present day. Additionally you will discover how cinema in those parts of the world, as well as across Europe and Asia, has become a significant part of global culture as a major entertainment industry. You will research and analyse key films and film movements in cinema; deepen your understanding of film, and make presentations of your findings. You’ll gain an academic, intellectual and practical understanding of one of the world’s most popular forms of mass entertainment and study work-related themes such as film distribution, exhibition and film journalism. The course has strong links to the local culture industries, in particular: HOME, Greater Manchester Arts Centre; and the Viva: Spanish and Latin American Film Festival. This will give you an insight into the practicalities of film distribution and exhibition. Graduates of this course have gone on to work in a number of film related-careers such as film journalism, cinema administration, cinema programming and film festival/events organisation.
