Film Analysis and Narration

Karel Deburchgrave
Film Critic, Hasselt, Belgium

Wed 18 and 25 Jan, 8, 15 and 22 Feb – 7.30 to 9.45 pm
Lumière Cinema, Bassin 88

Film analysis is the process in which a film is analyzed in terms of the visual, the sound, the editing and narration. Analysing film will help us understand the effectiveness of the intentions and messages of filmmakers and our own interpretations of films. Each session will be illustrated with film clips linked to a film programmed at Lumière Cinema (see our website for the titles).

Karel Deburchgrave is the chairman of the Belgian film monthly Filmmagie and has worked as a film critic for various Dutch and English magazines. He teaches film at the film museums of Brussels, Antwerp and Louvain.
