Film Studies explores the many aspects of films from the technical to the social and political. The course is essentially project based whereby students are expected to research or explore the ideas or concepts, touched on in the class, in their own time.
Students who are interested in film but who are not interested in pursuing NCEA in this course are also welcome. And students who wish to attend the course when a particular film interests them may also do so.
