We are aware that some specifications are currently being accredited by Ofqual.

At Edusites we don’t like to keep our subscribers in limbo so we are adding resources for teaching the new A Level Film Studies Specification.

Each term we provide a Core Unit, Exam Unit and NEA Unit based on the Department for Education Film Studies A Level subject content. (February 2016)

The intention of the course of study is to enable learners to demonstrate knowledge and understanding. This must involve learners exploring:

  • a diverse range of film
  • the significance of film and film practice in national, global and historical contexts
  • film and its key contexts (social, cultural, political, historical technological)
  • how films generate meaning and response
  • film as commercial product and as artistic expression
  • the different ways in which spectators respond to film.

Below are links to all of the elements you will need for the first term. Please read the note on copyright carefully.

  • Our resources have been commissioned and the professional teachers have been paid for the work they have produced


  • For each term you have three elements to the course; A Core Unit, An Exam Unit and a Non Examined Assessment (NEA) Unit. All three of these Units then...
