Course objectives

The aim of this course is to provide a basic knowledge of the organization, production, and promotion of film-related cultural events, with a focus on the promotion of film heritage. Through lectures, meetings with professionals, and workshops, students will apply what they have learned to real-life scenarios that may be experienced in archives, film museums, film festivals, and, more generally, cultural and touristic events.

Results of learning outcomes

Students will gain the above-mentioned knowledge and experience through lectures, meetings with professionals, workshops, and personal study and research.

At the end of the course, students will:

  1. demonstrate a basic comprehension of the issues related to preserving and exbhibiting cinema and media in contemporary cultural landascapes, with a focus on matters of programming and curatorship.
  2. develop the ability to apply key concepts to the analysis of specific contexts related to cinema and its heritage in contemporary societies and cultures; 
  3. develop the ability to critically discuss and assess different approaches and practices in film preservation, promotion, and programming;
  4. develop the ability to create connections between film culture and cultural and touristic promotion;

Throughout the course, students will be asked to apply what they have learned to a project of their own design, related to the preservation and promotion of film heritage broadly understood. The project design will reflect and incorporate the knowledge they gained on issues of preservation, production, promotion, exhibition, and access of film heritage and culture.

Program

The course aims at giving an overview of the various forms of preservation and promotion of film heritage, with a specific focus on curatoship and programming. 

We will begin the course with a historical overview of the rise of practices aimed at preserving and promoting films and and the so-called "non-film" documents, to then focus on the different fields, themes, and figures of which film culture is made up:

- archives, museums, temporary exhibitions;

- film festivals and retrospectives;

- movie theatres, digital platforms, alternative screening spaces;

- archivists, programmers, curators, directors and artists;

- film restoration and preservation.

Learning assessment methods

The score (from 18/30 to 30/30) will evaluate if the student has acquired the ability to critically evaluate and analyze the subjects presented during the lessons, including historical knowledge and the necessary methodological tools.

Classes will be set as a workshop, and students will be required to conceive a detailed project for an initiative related to the topics covered in the course (the projects will be exposed during classes).

The final exam (for attending and non-attending students) will consist of a written test with 31 multiple-choice questions.

 

Attending students: The final vote will be determined by both the score of the test and the evaluation of the students' participation and engagement during the group projects held in class.
 
Non-attending students: The final vote will be determined by both the score of the test and the evaluation of an essay (2000 words) on a topic agreed with the teachers by email. The essay has to be submitted at least a week before the final exam.
