About The Film Literacy Program
Simply defined, film literacy is the act of acquiring knowledge and values through the use of film or other audio-visual media. Beyond conventional print literacy, the audio-visual media (such as film) is vested with the power to produce knowledge of academic as well as practical nature and purpose. This is made more relevant in the 21st century when the world is ruled by moving picture culture such as that seen to proliferate in mass media, computers, and digital technology.
The program believes that motion pictures, like the alphabet, are coded messages which carry meanings that go beyond the literal sense to encompass cognitive and affectual understanding of the symbols that govern our lives and the realities surrounding us. To understand the workings of media and how they affect our lives, the proponent has devised a FILM LITERACY PROGRAM which seeks to promote the skills and benefits of audio-visual learning.
