Appreciation of art needs practice and perception. Cinema, the art of the twentieth century, is no exception. Film appreciation is the ability to detect the good or bad qualities of film. It makes one to experience a film beyond the formal ‘seeing’. There are so many prerequisites to learn the art of film appreciation. Along with the constant exposure to good cinema, learning and training in various aspects of cinema is essential. Film appreciation is considered as the door to enter the vast world of cinema where one could take it seriously to any possible extent. The objective of the course is to equip the learner with the tools to appreciate a film, thus inculcating a film culture.
The six-month certificate program in Film Appreciation is a basic course offering all about film in its technical, structural, aesthetical, historical, theoretical, social, cultural, political and popular contexts which enables the viewer to experience the medium of cinema in totality. The regular teaching lessons combined with the systematic training programs are intended to make the course all the more effective.
