Film Theory

DFM 220
Description: From its earliest days, cinema has attracted intellectual proponents, theorists and aestheticians inspired to write on the nature of cinema and its effects on culture. The goal of this course is to familiarize students with the major theoretical positions and debates in film theory and identify how these theories have influenced filmmakers and their work. Through texts and film screenings, the course will examine selected authors and specific theories including Structuralism, Realism, Semiotics and Postmodernism.
