Course aim

Weeks 1 and 2 will introduce you to film theory including film criticism, genre, national cinemas, director-centred approaches, identity, socio-politics and related philosophical issues.

In Weeks 3 and 4, you will have the unique opportunity to apply the knowledge you have already gained to a variety of selected EIFF films and events, beginning with the Opening Night Gala. With your Student Delegate Pass, you will have access to fiction feature films, documentaries, film retrospectives, industry and in-person events, including UK or World premieres at the EIFF. The timetable for this part of the course is packed full of the festival events, screenings and tutorials that change each year and the Film Festival Student Delegate Pass is an exceptional addition to your academic summer experience in Edinburgh.

After each screening, you will then take part in tutorials where you can apply key concepts in film theory and criticism when discussing the film. You will also have the opportunity to work with local students at the Festival in Week Three, who will be participating in the An Insight into the EIFF course provided by the University of Edinburgh's Centre for Open Learning.
