Film School Drop Outs - Weekly Challenge 2018

Introduction

From the pioneers of film to post-digital trailblazers, the aim of this challenge is to take you on an adventure through the history of film.

This challenge will take place across the 52 weeks of 2018. Each week will address a new topic that will provide signposts through your journey. The goal is to watch at least one film each week that will expand your experience of film.

The syllabus can be found below. Each weeks topic will be accompanied by a link to a list of suggested films but feel free to choose any film that you feel meets that week's subject.See the List notes for weekly dates and tags.
