Montreal, NEW COURSE: FILM CULTURE IN IRELAND

November 28, 2009

FILM CULTURE IN IRELAND – IRST 398F / FMST 398S
Winter 2010, Thurs. 18:00-22:00
Instructor: Heather Macdougall

This course provides students with various approaches to analyzing the role of film (foreign and indigenous) in Irish culture, with equal emphasis placed on both the production and the consumption of film in Ireland. Topics to be discussed include censorship, film festivals/societies, urban and rural contexts, Irish-language films, and independent filmmaking, as well as Ireland’s relationship with British, European, and American cinema. There will also be a brief historical overview of film institutions in both the North and the South, including the Irish Film Board, the Irish Film Archives, and NI Screen. Finally, the course will explore the relationship between film and other sectors — such as tourism and education — in the Irish context. Weekly screenings will include feature films, documentaries, short films, and animation.
INFO: Space is still available. To register for this class, contact cdnirish@alcor.concordia.ca or 514-848-2424 ext. 8711
