Film courses

For film fans, there’s nothing better after a visit to the cinema than discussing the film over a post-screening drink.  Our film courses take that enjoyment in talking about film up a few notches and offer Cornerhouse audiences a space for debate and structured learning across a range of film and cultural topics.  Whether you’re a fan of Italian Neo-realism, a Spanish cinema buff or a documentary devotee, you’ll find something in our course programme to capture your imagination.

Led by local film experts who work closely with us all-year-round, our courses provide lively, stimulating discussion in a informal setting.  We have courses at Beginner and Intermediate level too, so just choose what is best for you. If you’ve not studied film before or are looking for a broad starting point before moving on to other courses, we recommend our annual Essential Intro to Film Studies for all beginners. This course runs each October and frequently sells out – book early to avoid disappointment.

Courses run for 8 weeks and take place three times a year, starting in October, January and May.  All course information can be found here or in our monthly guide.
