Overview

The Film Studies programme at Keele looks at the medium across both local and international contexts, combining its focus on British and other national cinemas with the analysis of an increasingly global film culture.

Led by experienced lecturers, the Film Studies (Hons) at Keele University enables students to grasp the significance of film across cultural contexts, its importance as a mode of popular entertainment, and its centrality to expressions of individual, national, transnational, racial and sexual identities. As a Film student at Keele, then, you will learn to employ theoretical, historical and cultural strands of enquiry to analyse both classical and contemporary cinema, as well as making creative connections between Film and other art forms.
