Sixth Form Film Studies

Film Studies

Film Studies explores the historical, cultural and artistic significance of arguably the most important art form of modern times. The course examines the way in which we consume film texts, examining their representation of individuals and their effect on society.

The course provides students with the opportunity to analyse a range of texts, focusing on British film, US film and World Cinema, affording the students an insight into film language, genre, culture, social-political issues and national identity.

The production units enable students to utilise their understanding of film concepts by creating their own texts, supported by state-of-the-art technology, including a suite of MacBook Pros which use the industry-standard Final Cut Pro editing software, as well as digital cameras to produce texts comparable with film industry practice.

This rigorous course helps students to make sense of society through the medium of film and hones their analytical, creative, information-gathering and organisational skills.
