    What employers would like this degree? On a serious level, no McDonals etc. answers. I really like film and I want to know which sectors would take me in after getting a degree in this. Or what else would they want as well as this?

    I'm currently doing GCSE Film Studies and have applied to take it at A-level as well as Film Studies MA at university.
    I also really want to get into film particularly screen writing and have been told that A-levels in English Language and/or English Literature would be very useful if you want a career in the film industry or more specifically screen writing.
    If you want a film degree but don't want to go into film then sectors such as :
    Teaching ( teaching and/or lecturing film)
    Research based jobs
    Working for a council or as a civil servant
    writing

    You could also consider an "english and film" or "literature and film" degree and some universities such as Bath spa university offer film as a combined subject which you could take along with languages such as German or French , media , journalism or even food/nutrition.

    Hope this helps

    What about your BA?

    Well the obvious answer is that it can get you into writing for various companies - BBC Radio, for example. There's also writing for TV, film, video games, all sorts.
    Most people I know who have taken a course in screenwriting have gone on to do voluntary at places and go on to do draft scripts/etc, but most work is freelance, as with most writing-based degrees.
    However anyone with a passion for film can get into the critic business, for example. There's a good website called Letterboxd which I believe is open beta at the moment, where you can join and talk to like-minded film buffs (ie me) and review/critic films, which whilst you don't need a degree in persay, is all the more helpful to have.
