Ever wondered why certain films like Vertigo, Bladerunner and The Matrix are known as classics? Our newly acquired subscription to BFI Film Classics Collection offers arguments for a film’s ‘classic’ status as well as discussions relating to the film’s production, history, technical and aesthetic aspects, plus much more.

What about having screenplays like Dunkirk at your fingertips? Bloomsbury and Faber Screenplays and Criticism offers access to award-winning screenplays as well as a host of books on cinema, many covering practical techniques for filmmaking and screenwriting.

BFI Film Studies is a great resource for anyone interested in films from aficionados to a casual interest. If you want ebooks on film history, theory, national cinemas, filmmakers and actors from Marilyn Monroe to George Clooney, BFI Film Studies is your resource.

All these exceptional collections, including Filmmaking and Auteur Film Studies, form part of the Library’s new Bloomsbury Screen Studies subscription.

All are ideal for academics and students engaged in screen studies research or film enthusiasts wanting to know more about film history, theory and practice.
