Middle School

Film Appreciation Intensive: The Art of Cinema

Instructor: Josephine Cripps

For students entering 10th through 12th grades in the fall.

This course is for students who wish to explore movies in depth. We will screen two films each day, interspersed with discussions and lectures. This is a unique opportunity to be introduced to some lesser-known masterpieces. This course is not a film production class. Students will view a selection of films from the list below. We avoid films with excessive violence, sexual content, drug use or profanity. However, some R-rated titles will be screened.

Movies with an R rating contain some adult material. Parental permission is required for all students at the time of registration. Parents are urged to learn more about the films we will be screening.
