SOTA: School of the Arts Singapore
Film
Students specialising in Film at Year 5 and 6 will explore film as a cinematic art form and track its development through history, theory, and production techniques. They learn to balance theory and practice as well as deconstruct the film for meanings through its language and grammar. They will understand that film is a cultural document that allows for exploration of issues ranging from formal aesthetics to historical representation, from the regional film industries to transnational audience reception, including the influence of the time and space in which it is made.

As film is teeming with artistic possibilities, students will acquire the technical and collaborative skills to create original work, which is presented in industry-standard screening events at the end of each year.
