Film, Television and Screen Industries

The film, television and screen industries are central to global culture. They entertain, inform, promote ideology and help us communicate and connect.

We're experts in how these industries have developed, how they operate now and what the future trends are.

We're also concerned about how people are affected by these industries - both as consumers and how people making the products are treated.

Our staff work closely with industry so their research is based in current practice and this knowledge feeds into their teaching.
