Cinema Classics

Cinema is a visual art-form used to simulate experiences that communicate ideas, stories, perceptions, feelings, beauty, or atmosphere through the use of moving images. Films are cultural artifacts created by specific cultures. They reflect those cultures, and, in turn, affect them. A film is considered to be an important art form, a source of popular entertainment, and a powerful medium for educating or indoctrinating citizens. In SPIC MACAY’s Cinema classic module we show some of the selected National and International awarded films to students, to help them appreciate the finer aspects of cinema, a special screening of quality movies made by great film directors, like Satyajit Ray, Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman, Charlie Chaplin. This module can be organized in any institution with the support of Local SPIC MACAY coordinators of the respective areas. "In the cinema classic module SPIC MACAY introduces young students to meaningful, well-crafted films; their cinematic appreciation improves and they understand the potential of cinema...thereby raising it to a level of an art " as said by Girish Kasaravalli, filmmaker and winner of 14 National Film Awards.

Within the SPIC MACAY online series we are screening films under National Cinema Classics every Friday, 6:00 pm,  followed by an interaction with the experts. Any 5 schools can participate at one time with 90 students and 2 teachers per screening. Find below the tentative schedule, and testimonials from student participants. :
