Film Studies

The Film Studies department is world-leading in the history, theory, and criticism of film, television, and digital video, as well as their artistic, social, cultural, and political impact. The range of general and specialised topics we teach is second to none. As your degree progresses, you will choose from a wide and ever-evolving selection of modules, including Asian Popular Cinema, French New Wave, Hollywood Cinema, Film Festivals, Documentary in the 21st Century, Global Cult Cinema, Television Studies, Women Directors, Introduction to Filmmaking, and many more. Creative practice is embedded in the Film Studies curriculum, in both teaching and assessment – you'll have opportunities to produce video essays or short films on a range of topics using state-of-the-art professional equipment. You will develop valuable professional skills in audio-visual creativity, oral and audio-visual presentation, group discussion and debate, written argumentation, and research in libraries, archives, and online. We facilitate internships in film, media, and arts-related companies and organizations around London. There are also ample extra-curricular film and moving image-related activities in the heart of London, including additional opportunities for both film appreciation and filmmaking in KCL Student Union’s FilmSoc.
