While studying at Queen Mary you will be given opportunity to make films. A number of modules, including Screenwriting, Film Production, The Visual Essay, Directing Drama and Creative Production, require you to learn and reflect upon the core skills required of a successful film practitioner. This strand of the curriculum actively encourages you to adopt the role of scholar-filmmaker, to put ideas into practice and to consider your work as part of a process of repetition and reflection leading to greater accomplishment.
The degree requires you to bring the knowledge you attain learning about film history and film theory into dialogue with film practice, exploring and interrogating the relations between the different approaches. The following link provides detail of a selection of the film practice modules we run in the department.
