Narrative in Film course open screenings

Narrative in Film course screenings are a series of ten films, each introduced by a professor or lecturer.


Fri 27 Feb - Fri 15 May,  Aalto Design Factory Stage,  Betonimiehenkuja 5 C, Espoo

Narrative in Film course screenings are a series of ten films, each introduced by a professor or lecturer which serve to illuminate different aspects of narrative structure and storytelling technique in film. Each three hour class will consist of a short introduction and screening of that week's film, followed by a brief discussion about the film with the instructor. It is a companion course to both Storytelling and GIN (Generative and Interactive Narratives) in the Department of Media, yet is open to all. Responsible professor: Zach Dodson. Additional instructors introducing films: Mika 'Lumi' Tuomola, Saku Heinänen, Rasmus Vuori, Pia Tikka.
Aalto students enrolled in the courses are given priority seating, but the movie night is open to all! Come, bring a friend, and start your weekend with a great film...
