Film Seminars: Artists in Film, 1971, page 2
ARTISTS IN FILM The aim of Film Seminars: Artists in Film, a non-credit, extra- curricular course, is to instill a basic understanding and appreciation of all aspects of the motion picture, viewed as an art form. Unlike most college courses, this program for Fall 1971 has been specifically designed to take full advantage of Barnard College's location in one of the world's great motion picture centers. Every Tuesday evening for six weeks (Nov.9-Dec.14) students and alumnae will examine a variety of topics and be given a general introduction to film-making through a lecture, a film showing, and a group discussion with well known film-makers. Professionals with outstanding achievements in producing, directing, acting, scriptwriting, etc., as well as film critics and historians, will provide insights and information beyond the scope of any textbook. This format affords an exciting planned program which is flexible enough to take advantage of any unexpected opportunities. Additional activities open to those registered include visits to films on location in New York City, invitations to private film screenings, and special previews of major films yet to be released. Although we would wish to make any or all of these seminars open to the entire academic community, we find it necessary to limit participation to 300 students and alumnae so that each meeting will function as an integral part of the entire seminar series. A further aim of this program is to bring the post-graduate back onto campus so that there can be a viable interchange of ideas between students and alumnae. A registration form for the seminars will be found on the final page of this brochure. Registration is limited and applications will be processed as they are received.
