With a range of subject choices and additional compulsory subjects, the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a complete package that brings to students various facets of learning. Subjects not just ranging from science to arts, but also touching upon Film, Theatre, Dance, Theory of Knowledge, and so on guide and prepare students, between 16-19 years of age, for success in university and beyond.

The IB Diploma Programme aims to provide a safe yet academically challenging place for students to become knowledgeable, compassionate, curious, and interculturally understanding adults. With multiple language options and subjects like Global Politics, students are given a credible platform to learn through the lens of other cultures.

If you have a keen interest not just in the silver screen but also in the workings behind it, then IB DP Film is a suitable course for your liking. It is designed to help develop students as skilled makers of film texts. The course studies and analyzes film texts, along with practical exercises in film production, through which students learn to criticise as well as appreciate different artistic, historical, cultural, and global perspectives in the art of filmmaking. IB DP Film helps students examine key concepts, theories, and a variety of practices and ideas from a range of perspectives. This also helps them challenge their own views for a deeper understanding of those of others.

This course is most suitable for those students who wish to pursue film as a career option – as a director, filmmaker, actor, or a writer too. Sign up for a complete understanding and application of IB Film.
