Do you enjoy watching movies? Do you find discussing movies adds to your enjoyment? Do you find that you can better understand a movie by hearing and sharing thoughts about the movie? Then come along to our Film and Literature class.
In the class we discuss a movie we have watched, treating the movie as a form of literature.
In 2019 we will be attending current movies chosen from BPACC’s program at a time which suits our individual commitments.
A ‘Movie Money’ voucher from BPACC will enable group members to watch each movie at a cost of $9.50.
We will then catch up at the library or one of Benalla’s wonderful coffee shops at 1:30pm on the second Wednesday of the month to discuss the movie.
About Film as Literature
Do you enjoy watching films? Do you find discussing films adds to your enjoyment? We certainly do. Do you find that you can better understand a movie by hearing and sharing thoughts about the film? In our Film as Literature class we review a film we have watched, discussing the film as we would a book. In 2019 we all watched a selected film screening at BPACC and then discussed the film at our regular class. Due to the closure of BPACC during 2020, we each chose a different film, depending on what we could access (DVD, iView, SBS World Movies, Netflix, etc). We then shared a review with the rest of the class (refer * below). This approach resulted in a wide range of films and interests covered. We will continue this approach for 2021 until we are able to access films at BPACC, either meeting in person to discuss the films watched or sharing our thoughts via email.

" 2020 - New Normal?"
* During Covid, we shared reviews of films watched during the month via email, with our monthly newsletter report reflecting the wide range of films reviewed. We are including ratings with our reviews.
We welcome anyone who wishes to join us. Contributions are due by the second Monday of the month - email firstname.lastname@example.org
2019 - "Normal" Hopefully in 2021 we will be able to return to our usual format in which we meet together each month to discuss a film we have watched, discussing the film as we would a book.
