The curriculum of the Film and Television programme from University of Bristol progresses from introductory units, which use specific topics to teach you how to analyse film and television, to more advanced units that cover significant historical movements, contemporary practices and the theoretical concepts that underpin, inform and shape film and television.

About

The University of Bristol has a long history of innovation in the study of film and television. In the late 1960s, Professor George Brandt introduced Film and Television studies to the University curriculum and the subject has been taught at Bristol ever since.

In our Department of Film and Television, guided by leading scholars and practitioners, you will explore the history of film and television, consider theoretical perspectives, appreciate how films are made and engage in practical film-making activities.

As well as being trained in scholarly investigation and critical thinking, you will work collaboratively in groups and develop skills relevant to practical film-making. Throughout your studies you will encounter a range of film and television professionals, and in your final year you will have the chance to undertake a placement in the creative industries.
