Queen Mary has an active and flourishing interest in graduate work in Film Studies, leading to the degrees of MA, MPhil and PhD. The Department of Film Studies is one of the leading centres for graduate film study in London and benefits also from its close collaborative links with staff and graduate students at several other institutions of the University of London, such as the SOAS, Goldsmiths College, Birkbeck College, Royal Holloway, UCL and KCL.

From the earliest days of British cinematic history, most British studios were in London. The capital remains the part of Britain where film is most available for study – through the British Film Institute, including the BFI Southbank, National Library and National Archive, which are all a short tube journey away from Queen Mary. The research ethos of the Department of Film Studies is further developed through a lively programme of graduate seminars and lectures by distinguished film specialist guest speakers, including our public Hitchcock Lecture series. Past speakers have included Richard Dyer, Douglas Pye, Geoffrey Nowell-Smith, Christine Gledhill, Richard Allen, Kevin Brownlow, Diane Negra, and Laura Mulvey and Annette Kuhn. Talks have also been given by directors José Luis Borau, Karel Reisz, Claude Sautet and Jean-Paul Rappeneau, by Spanish actress Eulalia Ramón, and by Hollywood star Betsy Blair.

In addition to these activities, members of the Department have been responsible for organising major international conferences, including symposia celebrating the centenaries of the births of Luis Buñuel and David Lean, on the life and work of Lindsay Anderson, and on place and space in film. These events are regarded as an integral part of the research culture in film, and introduce MA and PhD students at the College to filmmakers and scholars working in the discipline.
