So you want to study cinema? Free sample introductions to Film Studies


Today, for those of you who may be thinking of taking the educational plunge into Film Studies (as well as for those seeking to guide potential film students), Film Studies For Free brings a list of links to high-quality, freely-available online essays, sample book chapters, and other resources, all of which all give a very rich sense of what it is like to study this highly rewarding subject.

If there any other relevant websites or sample introductory book chapters out there that FSFF has inadvertently omitted from this list, please feel free to email with information.

  1. Thanks for the excellent links, Jason. I’ll try and look out some more television studies introductions for a related post.

  2. …Thus inspired by Jason’s links, today’s FSFF post (above this one) gives lots of links to introductions to television and small screen studies.

  3. Corrigan & White's 2nd edition of The Film Experience is now out, and you can preview chapters 3 (mise-en-scene) and 10 (genres) here
