What you'll learn on the course
Skills and Training
Want to write for film, or write about film? Get expert advice from published writers and professional film-makers. Share your writing with other students, and work together to create films from your screenplays. Develop critical and practical skills that will impress publishers, studios and other employers.
If you’re aiming for a career in screenwriting or film journalism, or want to explore the worlds of film and writing, then Writing and Film Studies is the perfect combination for you. You’ll develop your creative and professional writing skills, examine many key films and film-makers and even get the chance to make your own films.
On our writing modules, you’ll develop your creative and professional writing skills through independent work as well as in our interactive workshops and seminars. Our teaching staff, many of whom are published authors, will offer invaluable feedback – as will your fellow students. Combining this with an exploration of areas such as grammar, style and critical writing, you’ll discover new ways to express your literary talent.
Our film modules will allow you to investigate film-making practices and critical approaches from all over the world, spanning the history of cinema. You’ll get the chance to make explorative, creative, and independent short films in video, animation, or 16mm formats, and develop your interests in film practice, film reviewing, film theory, and screenwriting.
You’ll even have the chance to show your film to the public at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse.
Our modules will also give you the chance to study your own areas of interest, such as animation, writing for radio, film reviewing or writing drama.
Throughout the course, you’ll be supported by published writers, critics, film-makers, journalists and professionals from related fields, who can show you the skills and techniques that publishers and studios look for in new writers.
