We're looking forward to welcoming you to Explore Filmmaking next week.
The course will take place online and will consist of a variety of videos, articles, and opportunities for you to contribute. Each week will be hosted by a different filmmaker and will feature a short film of the week, some of which are available online for the first time.
In the meantime, you may find it useful to start thinking about films that have been important to you, inspired you or had a particular impact and to start to share your thoughts with others on social media using the hashtag #FLexplorefilm.
There are no special requirements for the course, but there will be some opportunities to undertake some small scale practical activities if you have the equipment to do so.
There is still time to invite friends and colleagues to enrol on the course and take part alongside you. Having the support of people you know can really enrich the experience of studying online. Please do share the link to the course page on FutureLearn with others.
There will be plenty of opportunity to interact with other learners once the course begins, but feel free to use the hashtag #FLexplorefilm for any discussions in social networks. The course is due to begin on Monday 2 February. We will contact you again with a welcome note when the course gets underway.
If you have any queries or feedback in the meantime, we won't personally be able to field them, but please take a look at FutureLearn's help pages.
