Educators' Workshop
Film Literacy
This workshop is particularly relevant to educators who teach English, Literature, Visual/Media Communication and Cultural Studies. Participants will be coached on how to decode moving images through an exploration of narrative, filmic techniques and context. In developing an understanding and appreciation for the language and art of the film media, participants will be provided with strategies on how to provoke and generate critical questions about a film’s creation and its purpose. Through the use of short films, educators will learn how to effectively teach film through analysis of key scenes and will be taught how to clear copyrights for films used for educational purposes.
