APRIL IN FILM STUDIES
TWO COURSES RUN BY JEAN-MICHEL FRODON
Prominent international journalist and film critic Jean-Michel Frodon has joined the St Andrews Department of Film Studies and will teach two open, free seminars throughout April 2013. His extensive background in film criticism and history is drawn from his years as chief editor of Cahiers du Cinema.
FILM FESTIVALS AND FESTIVAL FILMS
This series of seminars will study the concept and development of film festivals and festival films: how do film festivals effect filmmaking worldwide? We will cover issues such as the festival visitor, mass markets, national and transnational festivals, the politics of festivals, themed festivals, audiences and professionals, economics and aesthetics, archives, patterns and explorations.
Seminars take place once a week. These two-hour sessions are open to everyone and will take place in the Quad, School 5, on Thursdays, 11.00am - 1.00 pm.
CINEMA AND NATION
These seminars will look at the concept of national cinema and the projection of the nation on screen. We will cover issues such as national identity and national film cultures, through the hypothesis of how cinema has, and still does, represent national situations and evolutions, for its indigenous communities and potentially also for the rest of the world.
Seminars take place twice a week. These 1.5-hour seminars are open to everyone and will take place in the Quad on Wednesdays (School 1) and Thursdays (School 6) at 5.30pm to 7.00pm.
