The universe of cinema

16 February
GAMeC – Bergamo

The course explores cinema and films as part of a larger globe, the  film culture’s globe, in order to understand the system of the international and local cinema.

The course will focus on these topics:

  • Culture of production/distribution/business;
  • Film rating;
  • Movie as a product and movie as cultural value;
  • Festivals;
  • Teach the cinema and its language: from the historiography to the post-movie breakdown analysis.

This approach aims to join different aspects, which are usually dealt separately. These specific tools would help to understand in a deep way the cultural, symbolic and practical process used by the experts in that sector.

Where: Spazio ParolaImmagine – GAMeC | Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo – Via San Tomaso, 53 – Bergamo

It is a Bergamo Film Meeting project, with the support of Fondazione Cariplo, in cooperation with GAMeC.
