Dive into the history, theory and culture of film with our Moving Image Arts. This is an Applied Subject (AS) qualification that examines the history, techniques and creative impact of film. Through the course, you will gain the knowledge and skills to make your own films during Tuesday and Thursday evening classes.

About the programme

There are two units within the course:

  • Practical: Create a portfolio of work, including a short film
  • Theoretical: An online exam on the history, techniques and theory of film

The Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland developed and accredited this course. The course is also free and open to young people aged 16 to 25 in Glasgow, no matter your background or previous experience. Above all, you need a passion for film. We also provide travel bursaries for those from low to no income backgrounds, and from rural communities. 


We have put measures in place that will allow us to safely deliver this course in person. Due to this, there may be some blended learning via virtual classes.

Not interested in an AS qualification? Focus on the practical with the BFI film academy or our Summer School, open to 16-19-year olds.
