Film Studies

Discover our Film Studies courses including undergraduate, Masters and PhD degrees.

Film Studies helps you understand how cinema entertains, informs and influences its audiences. You’ll investigate film as an art form and as an industry.

You can follow your passion – from Hollywood blockbusters to activist filmmakers, and from Latin American cinema to representations of gender, race and sexuality. You’ll be able to find the films that interest you, and explore new genres, through our collection of over 5,000 films.

Brighton is the perfect place to study film as it hosts several film festivals every year.
