Course Overview

The AS Level / A Level Film Studies course located in the Sixth Form Academy (SFA) will bring alive the subject of cinema and provide a fascinating and detailed insight into the world of films and filming.

You will investigate the way film constructs meaning and provokes a spectator response. Film-making and viewing is an interactive, two-way process, it is a language through which we communicate ideas and messages. This is an art form and one which, like other art forms, for example, fine art and literature, requires the reading of various texts. You will not only be required to demonstrate an understanding of the films set before you, but also to extract further information at a deeper level of analysis.

You will be encouraged to extend your own creativity and production skills, and given the opportunity to investigate and develop your own ideas and short films.
