Film analysis is the process in which a film is analyzed in terms of the visual, the sound, the editing and narration. Analyzing film will help us to understand the effectiveness of filmmakers’ intentions and messages as well as our own interpretations of the final visual product. Each topic will be illustrated with many film clips from different times and directors. The presentations will also be linked to films at Cinema Lumière: 
www.lumiere.nl.

Karel Deburchgrave is the chairman of the Belgian film monthly Filmmagie and has worked as a film critic for various magazines. He teaches film at the film museums of Brussels, Antwerp and Louvain and gives film seminars for teachers at different cultural centers.
