Genre and purpose of film

102 | 0 | 0
In this lesson we learn about genre (type or kind) and the purposes of films. Being able to determine the genre of a film will enable learners to see how films often follow a formula and use stereotyped characters. They will also be able to work out the purpose of a film which will help them to analyse it more effectively. To reinforce and extend this lesson, play clips of various films and see if learners can determine the genre and possible purpose of the films. Then select one film to watch in full to see if their predictions were correct, and how a formula and stock characters were used.
