- The Film Studies course at Kingston University offers the opportunity to carry out research into a variety of areas, including gender and sexuality on screen; philosophy and film; industry and independents in New Hollywood; contemporary British, European and transnational traditions; and experimental and avant-garde cinema.
- Kingston's ideal location allows you to make use of the many film based resources in London, such as the British Film Institute (the largest film archive in the world).
What will you study?
You will study all that is new, vital and innovative in contemporary and emergent cinemas. You will evaluate and critically analyse a range of perspectives on cinema in light of contemporary developments, shifting cultural alliances and patterns of cross-fertilisations. In addition, you will be introduced to the main areas of debate in the history of film criticism. Current modules focus on European and transnational cinematic traditions, post-1960 British cinema, film and philosophy, avant-garde and experimental cinema, and cinematic animals.
In writing your dissertation, you will demonstrate your ability to research a topic of your choice in depth, gaining a rigorous grasp of current theoretical and methodological debates relevant to the subject area, as well as an understanding of the historical and cultural context.
