Film in Britain offers students the opportunity to study film history and film production in two of Europe’s most vibrant cities, London and Edinburgh.

This six-week program, led by Drs. Bill Vincent and Swarnavel Pillai, will combine the academic study of film, film production, and exposure to London and Edinburgh as cinematic cities. The production component will allow students to study screenwriting and/or film directing.

Filming will take place in some of the most cinematically attractive locations in both London and Edinburgh, incorporating famous landmarks like the London Eye, Brighton Beach Pier, the Hill Garden and Pergola, and more. Students will screen films at the British Film Institute, with classroom visits from world famous filmmakers and theorists.
