Pittsburgh-London Film Program

 
Open to UNC students, the Pittsburgh-London Film Program aims to provide students with a uniquely rich academic and cultural experience, combining the highest level of academic expertise with the world class production skills of the Derek Jarman Lab. All the courses on the program take London as their focus and all seek to mix production with history and analysis.

Though this program is intended primarily for Global Cinema Studies students, applications from students in other disciplines within the College of Arts and Sciences would be considered, in particular students in Communication Studies. Students need not be Film majors, but they should have a background in film production or critical studies. Applicants need to have writing skills and practical abilities in order to be successful in the theoretical and practical aspects of the program.

Location

Study abroad in London and you find yourself constantly surprised by what you discover in one of the world’s most diverse and global cities.
 

Courses & Credits

The program is composed of four courses, and two masterclasses. At all stages the program combines theoretical academic analysis and detailed history of film with an emphasis on film-making practice. Each course provides students with an inventive and rich configuration of seminars, weekly screenings, and practical film production. All courses seek to reject the division between theory and practice and to provide teaching which articulates both.

More information about the academics can be found on the Pitt-London Film Program website.
