FILM 100: Intro to Film and Media Studies

Intro to Film is a course designed to introduce you to the language, theory and aesthetics of film. During this course, we will focus on thinking critically and writing intelligently about film. As we view a broad spectrum of film styles and genres from cinematic history, we will explore cinemas role as an artistic, social and meaning-­making force. Our aim is to present new ways of understanding, analyzing and appreciating film and all its visual, aural and narrative conventions.
