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.
