How to Read a Film

A Visual Literacy Workshop for High School Teachers and Media Educators

(Please note: This workshop was last presented on June 19 and 20, 2008. Due to funding considerations, it will not be offered in the foreseeable future.)

The Pacific Film Archive presents a two-day intensive teacher workshop, How to Read a Film, now in its tenth year. This popular practicum is designed to help high school teachers and media educators equip young people with the critical viewing skills necessary to master twenty-first-century visual culture—from cinema space, through the video trace, to the vastness of MySpace—while encouraging the exploration of film and video as unique art forms.

For information about presentations, fees, and enrollment, please contact PFA Video Curator Steve Seid at (510) 642-5253 or seidtrak@berkeley.edu.

How to Read a Film: A Visual Literacy Workshop for High School Teachers is made possible by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Bernard Osher Foundation, and the Academy Foundation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
