A dynamic learning community in a leading centre of film and television research.
We are one of the longest established centres for film and television studies in the UK, internationally recognised as pioneers in the field. Our research and teaching focuses upon film, television and other media, their complex interrelations, and the creative and cultural contexts in which they are produced and consumed. We are recognised as world leaders in the study of British, Hollywood and Asian cinemas, popular film and television genres, and feminist approaches to media. Some of our major assets include the East Anglian Film Archive, a unique resource utilised by staff and students, our close links with the British Film Institute in London, and MAKE Media, a film production unit housed in the department.
