Program Description

Develop your writing and filmmaking skills while learning about the films, writers, and directors that have shaped the medium by studying οn a bachelor in Writing and Film (with Foundation) (BA) at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).

Investigating filmmaking practices from all over the world, and learning the language of film from the perspective of a filmmaker, you’ll make your own short films in video, animation, or 16mm format, with full training in camera operation, sound recording, and editing from professional filmmakers.

If you specialize in filmmaking, you’ll put your well-practiced skills to the test in a project that, once complete, will be screened at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse. The best may also be selected for showing at the Cambridge Film Festival. You’ll learn to write knowledgeably and critically about film, giving you even more opportunities to get involved in Cambridge’s exciting arts scene.
