Film Studies MA Queen Mary University of London

This Film Studies MA at Queen Mary University of London offers you the opportunity to explore key aspects of film analysis, theory, history and practice. Through a range of different approaches to the study of film, including genre and textual analysis, audience studies, and media archaeology, you will be exposed to some of the most pressing debates about film today. Questions of ethics and whether we can consider film as a document; of how film works on our bodies as an affective medium; the reasons for film’s close affinity to urban, cosmopolitan and diasporic cultures; and the historical legacy of film as an international, and now transnational medium, are all central to the course.

Our MA Film at Queen Mary University of London includes three different pathways for you to choose from:

The MA Film (Theory) pathway offers you the opportunity to explore key aspects of film analysis, theory, history and practice.

Through a range of different approaches to the study of film, including genre and textual analysis, audience studies, and media archaeology, you will be exposed to some of the most pressing debates about film today. Questions of ethics and whether we can consider film as a document; of how film works on our bodies as an affective medium; the reasons for film's close affinity to urban, cosmopolitan and diasporic cultures; and the historical legacy of film as an international, and now transnational medium, are all central to the programme. In exploring these questions, you will be introduced to some of the liveliest and most important chapters in the history of cinema.

The MA Film (Documentary Practice) pathway investigates, articulates, questions and challenges issues of individual, social, political and ideological importance.

This pathway utilises documentary production as a professional creative skill and as a practice-based research tool to create sophisticated, intellectual and critical enquiry. The programme involves critical enquiry and research into documentary production and also includes creative production work to a professional standard.

The MA Film (Directing Fiction) pathway trains you in the technical, theoretical, creative and aesthetic skills necessary to direct fiction film, and helps you find your own voice and vision as a director.

The programme consists of an innovative combination of technical training, suitable for those completely new to filmmaking and those wanting to further their craft, mentoring in the production of a number of short films written and directed by the students, and historical and theoretical teaching.

Aims

The Department of Film provides great opportunities for you to develop the skills and attributes you need to progress successfully in your chosen career.

Both Documentary Practice and Directing Fiction pathways provide graduates with a roster of festival ready films, and the skills to pursue independent filmmaking or work in the industry. All three pathways equip you with skills and knowledge to pursue a range of careers in film and broadcasting, as well as continuing on to PhD study.
