3.1 English: Film Studies
Link to Course Overview
Film Studies is a comprehensive English course with a focus on film. It will explore the many aspects of film 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. NCEA assessments may be attempted at any time by individuals who choose to do so and have displayed the skills and learning needed.
There will be a range of NCEA level one and two English assessments for you to choose from according to your needs and interests.
Films that we will study this term will be those that have become culturally significant. Films will include Schindler’s List, Psycho and Shawshank Redemption.
Please note: films may have scenes that are violent, sexually explicit, that contain offensive language, or have controversial ideas.
