Students on this programme will benefit from a wide range of research expertise and professional experience from both Exeter University and the London Film School.

Students are currently being supervised in the following areas: Cinematography and the dynamics of authorship; folk and oral traditions in the context of national cinema; new directions and approaches to the essay film; exile and home in immigrant or accented cinema; representations of parenthood in contemporary British cinema; women in central Asian cinema.
