Omschrijving This course offers an overview of the history of film from the 1890s until today. It deals with the most important periods, modes, styles, and genres in film history. In addition, we will not forget the rise of television, video, and digital media and the resulting interplay between the different media. Although the focus will be on the development of fiction film, we will also devote attention to such filmic modes as experimental film, documentary, and home movies.

This film course is accompanied by a series of ten film screenings in an actual cinema, which are preceded by a 10-15 minute introduction. Depending on the Covid-19 regulations, the screenings may take place on Wednesday between 11.00am and ca. 1.45pm in the Forum Groningen (Nieuwe Markt 1).

Note that it is a necessary part of studying film to watch a wide range of movies in their proper cinematic surroundings. Hence attending the screenings will be an obligatory part of the course! We therefore highly recommend to reserve the time slot in your schedules.
