PROGRAM DATES: 5/21 - 7/2

In its 30th year, 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. Kenneth Harrow and Bill Vincent will combine the academic study of film, film production, and exposure to London and Edinburgh as cinematic cities. The production component, supervised by Dr. Vincent an accomplished filmmaker, 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 and will include a filming expedition on the London Eye and trips to Oxford and the Harry Pottter Experience. Following the study period in London, we will travel to Edinburgh for the Edinburgh Film Festival, which features British film and is one of the most important film festivals in the world. Our program features talks and screenings by contemporary British filmmakers, and will encourage students to participate in the contemporary experimental film and media scene taking place at institutions like the Barbican, the Tate Modern, the National Film Theater, and the Serpentine Gallery.

Program costs: Program fees will be finalized in October, and will be commensurate with the other OSA programs in London. For comparison, last year's program fee was $5375. Apply for scholarships and find more information about Financing Study Abroad (external link).
