Community Education Offers Free Film Appreciation Class

Film screenings begin Feb. 28.

FEBRUARY 4, 2014 -- Allan Hancock College Community Education offers a class in film appreciation beginning Feb. 28.

The class examines film as an art form and emphasizes film appreciation – a study of historical context, dramatic issues, artistic and technical objectives and narrative genre.  Films are viewed and discussed during four class sessions, and students critically analyze all of these elements in order to gain insight and understanding of visual media.

The Film Appreciation class is free and meets on the Santa Maria campus Feb. 28, March 7, March 14, and March 28, at 6:30 p.m. in the Forum, Room C-40 (no class March 21).  Film selections include My Life as a Dog (Feb. 28), District 9 (March 7), The Intouchables (March 14), and The Bird People in China(March 28).  Some films are subtitled and may contain violence, adult language and mature themes.

Pre-registration is required, and students must be at least age 18 to enroll.  Register online at for course number (CRN) 41921.  If using the Class Search mode, select Older Adults [OLDR 7005] in the course subject area for class information.
