Discussion Topic 8: Film Study

Make forum posts: 1

The film industry has become a major part of our economy. Like other artistic mediums, it reflects and anticipates the culture surrounding it, although many would argue Hollywood has a culture all its own. Now, independent films (those made outside of the big Hollywood studios) have a larger effect on audiences because they can examine themes and ideas beyond what the big studios decide to finance.

  • How often do you see films?
  • Do you view films in a theater or on other digital media?
  • What kind of films do you like? Do you prefer human interest stories, action films, romances, fantasy, or animation?
  • What are your thoughts on film's role to entertain and inform?
  • What is your favorite film? Why?
