Film Noir (and Neo-Noir) has long exerted a fascination on audiences and scholars. This course is particularly devoted to exploring the history and evolution of the genre via extensive clips and discussion on films from the USA, UK and Europe from the 1940s to the present. Featuring the work of classic and modern day directors such as Howard Hawks, John Huston, Francis Ford Coppola, Joel & Ethan Cohen, David Lynch & Erik Skjoldbjærg, and actors Gene Hackman, Dennis Hopper, Isabella Rossellini, Frances Mcdormand & Stellan Skarsgård.

Please note: Due to the easing of social distancing measures, this face to face course has a capacity of 12 attendees. This is set at 75% of full capacity to the ensure safety of our students and tutors. We will endeavour to increase this number to full capacity in due course.

About the Speaker

Steven Moonan


Steven Moonan has been teaching for 20 years and first taught in Taiwan in 1999 as a TEFL Teacher, then South Korea, China and Mexico. On returning to England in 2010 he got a place on the MA Fine Art course at Kingston University, where he specialised in making non-narrative short films. It was also at Kingston University where he completed his Post Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education.

Steven currently teaches Film studies at The Guildford Institute as well as a variety of arts courses at Guildford Adult Learning Centre. Steven has been passionate about film and world cinema ever since a film obsessed photography tutor at Wigan college (when he was 18) used to show full screenings of films by projecting original film reels onto a wall. The films Steven has covered at the Institute over the last year have been a broad spectrum from Asia, South America, Europe and beyond. It’s a subject he loves to teach and he feels there is so much that a film can teach us about a place and it’s people.


V Café at The Guildford Institute provides a friendly catering service using high quality, fresh, vegetarian and vegan ingredients.
