Becky Ellis, Film Studies Subject Officer:
"Using more than 30 years' experience of designing film studies qualifications, we have developed a suite of exciting qualifications which will engage students through filmmaking, screenwriting and studying a diverse range of film, past and present.
We're offering choice a diverse set of options designed to introduce students to films from the past and the present as well as from around the world. At GCSE (9-1), students can explore classic films such as Rear Window and E.T. together with contemporary films as varied as Skyfall, District 9, Let the Right One In, Juno and The Hurt Locker.
AS and A level
At AS, classic films from the past include One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Blade Runner, whilst more recent films range from Shaun of the Dead, Pan's Labyrinth, We Need to Talk about Kevin, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Boyhood and Victoria.
Those progressing on to A level can add films like No Country for Old Men, Inception, Carol, City of God, Wild Tales and classics such as Vertigo and Some Like it Hot. Students will also be able to broaden their experience of film through studying silent, avant-garde and experimental films and documentaries.
FREE Supporting Resources
A textbook to accompany the GCSE (9-1) specification is available to order now, an AS/A level textbook will be available later in the academic year.
In addition, each specification is supported by a comprehensive range of free online resources, which include briefings on all the films set. We also have free Guidance for Teaching resources for each specification. These fully illustrated documents include schemes of work, classroom activities and revision aids.
