Film (Theory and Practice)

The programme provides students with a sophisticated understanding of films as systems of meaning. Studies covers areas such as film-making, historical cinema, screenwriting and narrative. The course will advance students' knowledge of the musculature of cinematography and editing, and the nerve system of narrative conventions, authorship, genre, power, aesthetics, stardom and nationality. Students can specialise in areas of film theory, or in film practice; the latter including screenwriting, film-making and cinema management. They can also undertake a professional placement at the Tyneside Cinema where you specialise in either programming and marketing or participation and education.
