Our Film Studies program encourages students to step behind the lens and not only understand, but better appreciate film as an art form. By first learning the history of film and studying its major directors, students build a foundation for analyzing film techniques that they later use to produce their own films.
"The viewing and making of films is a way for us to reflect upon our society's past," explains film teacher Bobby Weiss. "By studying films, we can increase our understanding of our culture and the society that produced them."
