This is an exciting course accredited by the Welsh Joint Education Committee. It reflects the serious attention being paid to the moving image and is at the forefront of academic study. Through analytical exploration of moving image and the worldwide cinematic industry students will be prepared to discuss and examine the complicated relationships between audience and film.
At AS level students will study at least six films, all of which will be British, Irish or American and selected to engage students in the enjoyment of film watching as well as the study of moving image. At A2 level Film Studies widens to include international cinema and a broader, topic based approach to analysis of producers and audiences. Like other A-levels, it includes a synoptic paper which brings together all the skills learned over the two years.
