Dr David Sorfa: How to Write about Film, or, Is Writing about Film like Dancing about Architecture (Research Methods Workshop)

7 October 2015 @ 16:00 – 18:00
Gaddum Lecture Theatre G.8
1 George Square
Edinburgh, Edinburgh EH8 9LD

This is part of the Research Methods and Skills workshop series:

In this session I would like to explore some of the different ways in which academics and critics write about film. We will consider a number of examples of film writing and identify some common approaches and styles. We will also think a little more carefully about the difference between interpretation and evaluation when writing about the cinema. In the workshop we will engage with a number of film extracts and practice some ways of writing about film.
