Institution And Audience

Recommended for AS Film, AS Media and equivalent. Suitable for A2 Film and A2 Media.

Capacity: 158 places

Designed for AS Film and Media students, but also suitable for A2, the event will use a full screening of UN SECRET to explore how distributors and exhibitors assess the appeal of a film and present it to audiences. Why was this massively popular film in France given a very restricted release in the UK? Students will learn how different types of films attempt to reach audiences.

Led by Roy Stafford, Freelance Film Lecturer.


Screening: UN SECRET 15

UN SECRET tells the story of François, his strained early relationship with his parents and the family secret revealed to him when he’s 14. Crossing decades and folding in several narratives about childhood, romance and the Nazi occupation of France, this moving and visually impressive film confirms Claude Miller’s reputation as one of France’s finest directors.
