IDC300 – Film Studies (Open)
This course introduces students to enduring, popular genres in film with a focus on documentary filmmaking and its impact on society. Students will also be introduced to a variety of documentary films, styles, and directors. In all cases students will be expected to make connections and draw deeper conclusions about film and its relevance to our culture and within our society. Documentary films often focus on issues or people who are marginalized in society and need a voice to be represented. Regular analysis – both oral and written – will be a key component to the course, helping students understand the history of film as and art form an enabling them to understand how the makers of film structure their work to communicate ideas and feelings to an audience. Students will be in a position to consider their own potential in the film industry. The culminating activity for this course will be a short documentary film. PRE: Completion of ENG2DO or ENG2PO is strongly recommended
