CMN203 Film Forms: Narrative and Genre Filmmaking

Recognising genre as integral to the production, marketing, and reception of films, this course develops your understanding of narrative form and genre film, interweaving this examination with that of significant film histories and technologies. You will explore these in consideration of aesthetic, technological and industrial imperatives, as well as broader social and cultural contexts. You will examine a breadth of films and genres, including films and movements that revolutionised cinema, contemplate how technological developments continue to transform filmmaking and apply this knowledge to your own screen production practice.
