Education: IFI Launches 6-Week Evening Course: In Theory
Following its sold-out spring course, the IFI launches a new follow-up six-week evening course, In Theory, starting on October 6th 2015
The IFI’s autumn evening course will examine key ideologies that have formed film theory, from offering a general introduction to cinema and ideology to explorations of various themes such as feminism, political economy, and alterity. Running over six weeks, each evening will start with a screening of a selected film by a guest speaker, who will offer different readings in response. On the final evening, filmmaker, writer and teacher Donal ForemanDonal Foreman is an Irish filmmaker living between New York City and Dublin best known for his two features, Out of Here and The Image You Missed. More (Out of Here) will talk about his own film choice, Mike Leigh’s High Hopes and some of the ideas that inform his filmmaking.
The course continues the back-to-basics approach where no previous study is required, just a passion for film and a desire to see more. Attendees need not have taken the spring course.
The complete course costs €70 (concessions €65), and runs October 6th – November 10th on consecutive Tuesdays, commencing at 18.15 unless otherwise stated. To book, call Sharon Corrigan on 01 679 5744 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
