a symposium on filmand education
institute of art design and technology, dun laoghaire
the fourteenth speaking matters event:
In his book The Film Sense (1942) the Russian director Sergei Eisenstein promoted the concept of film as a total experience which engaged the whole individual as a creative, thinking, expressive being. As a teacher of film-making he was committed to the pedagogical value of film, not merely as a sensory and aesthetic experience for the viewer, but as a medium of creativity and individuality for the maker. The National Film School at IADT, Dún Laoghaire and the Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media are hosting a one day symposium which uses the term 'filmsense' to explore the relationship between film as a technical medium, pedagogy and creativity. We are particularly interested in examining how the processes of film-making are taught within national curricula at primary, secondary and tertiary level.
