Students in the SIFF Film Appreciation class will be among the first to see films premiering at the 2014 Seattle International Film Festival. The class provides students with an industry insider’s access to new cinema. Through special screenings, the class offers a unique opportunity to view the latest films from the US and around the world. It will foster a critical understanding of film through an introduction to the narrative/stylistic techniques employed in modern filmmaking, with an emphasis on discussion and viewing of past and present festival films. Class discussions, writing assignments and screenings highlight the history, culture, style and diversity of stories found in film. Students develop skills to analyze film as well as its social and historical impact on our values and aesthetics.
