Courses on South-African, Chinese, Indian, and Russian and Soviet film historyCoordinated by Professors João Luiz Vieira and Rafael de Luna
Before the official launching of the Festival, four courses on South-African, Chinese, Indian, and Russian and Soviet film history, taught by native lecturers specially invited to the event, will be offered. The intensive courses will be held at Sala Interartes, at UFF’s Institute of Arts and Media, and Reserva Cultural. The courses on South-African, Chinese, and Indian film history will last five days, while the course on Russian and Soviet film history will be a three-day event.
Classes will be taught in English, but simultaneous translation will be available, and will include the exhibition of rare films (subtitled in English). The lecturers will provide an in-depth perspective on the different eras and styles of each country’s cinema, which will be complemented by the BRICS Classics programme.
The courses will be free of charge, and registration will be made available previously.
Participants with a minimum attendance of 75% will be entitled to a certificate. In addition to this, these courses will be offered as elective courses from the Department of Film and Video, for which UFF students can receive credits.
