MSTU2006 – Australian Cinema 87.1

I found the course quite difficult, mostly because of the slightly unconventional assessment and also the brevity of issues that are represented in Australian Cinema which I wasn't really thinking about all that much before taking the course. I hadn't really been interested in Australian film before taking the course, passing it off as mostly 'rubbish', however now I can see that the socio-cultural implications of the Australian national cinema are an interesting area of study and I highly recommend the course to English and Film/Media studies students who are looking for something to really make you think deep.

The teaching staff in the course are highly knowledgeable and very approachable.

Assessment is a little unconventional. Film programming notes, unless you've encountered that style of writing a bit before, can be a little confusing, however it is a fun piece of assessment that can be very rewarding.

The film texts chosen are interesting and relevant, very thought provoking, and cover a wide range of genres and styles and issues in cinema as well as socio-cultural issues.
