Film Studies at Sydney is a vibrant interdisciplinary program of study taught by a network of film scholars with wide-ranging disciplinary expertise. Encountering cinema as an intermedial phenomenon that draws on photographic, art historical, literary and post-cinematic new media traditions, students develop a fantastic critical literacy in the moving-image cultures in which we live.
A major modern art form, film has dramatically influenced cultural experience since the late nineteenth century and continues to shape our contemporary everyday lives. Studying film draws on both our intellect and our imagination. As an accessible and even ubiquitous transnational cultural form, film opens us to other worlds, other lives, other ways of seeing.
The program is offered at undergraduate, honours and postgraduate levels by drawing on the film courses offered across the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in a wide range of subject areas which include Art History, English, History, Italian, German and Music among others.
The Power is proud to announce the publication of The Orientation of Future Cinema by Departmental colleague Bruce Isaacs.
