There’s an inherent value to studying art for academic purposes, and the significant results span time and distance for individuals and their cultural and societal experiences or understandings.

The value of Film

Consider film as the “language of the people,” or man’s universal language, unifying all. Easy access via mass media helps spread a new idea, quicker even than a viral tweet or a fake story shared on Facebook.

Studies(notes, assignments, or projects) translate, and unlike literature—film can show instead of tell. Consequently, film supports the auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning-type. When this one language spreads via education or interaction as film, it can convey emotion, document history, or indeed stir emotion, while cultivating empathy and expanding our world.

Historical Significance

Just as significant as literature or chronicles—and despite its omission from textbooks or standard school curricula—Film holds dynamic positions of historical significance. Monsters that incited fear and inspired exploration, historic masterpieces, or famous individuals who fought for change and civil liberties, making lasting impressions on the history of the world, its governments, art, and Literature.

Additionally, studying film allows for a look at how communal experiences shaped systems of government, politics, races, and cultures. Secret and confined spaces offered comfort during a war that might shape future impressionists or surrealist carpenters. Or influenced how society socialized or perceived love, regardless of sexuality, race, gender, or metropolis/home-town.

Finally, the audio-based and non-divisive language Film offers makes it accessible to countless individuals or societies with different languages or cultures. And thus, these takes and interpretations bridge circumstances or divide time or place.

Social Significance

Moreover, films have caused a stir and still entertain and educate. A standard reply might include movies that made history, reflecting movements or capturing moods effectively. Today's filmmakers are “kings” and “queens” of social commentary. However, classics were transformative. And Truly transformative movies should make for great case-studies or lessons.

To name but a few examples:

Cinema Paradiso: A story about growing up with a little bit of everything you need from a film! Love, romance, nostalgia, comedy, and tragedy all wonderfully packaged for your enjoyment.

Ben Hur: Controversial religious drama, yet classic nonetheless, recounting the life of a Jewish prince who would one day be crucified with remorse.

Lord of The Rings: A powerful message. A trilogy that went as quickly forward as “the theme song of 9/11 (Ronald Reagan).”

Casablanca: A class in romance. Love won, lost and muddled by way of a bustling cafe in the only major city to evade capture from one or another world power. Designers and writers apt at storytelling deserve study.

Additionally, Film changed our lives, stage, design, art and—as a true marker of time—fashion! Films celebrate cultures, evolving soundtracks, and trends. What better way to understand the times than by watching a film?

The simplest definition of films is “a story on film.” And these stories bear the potential to identify you as part of a bigger picture. I could spend centuries rationalizing my love for film by listing movies for every topic, sub-genre, critical essay, term paper topic, thesis project, theme, event, or course. I hope though, you can understand by now just why films became a staple in analyzing, comprehending, or even delegating the spotlight to share its wealth—there’s safety in numbers.

You watch film for fun, or for any singular motive, but you learn so much more. A mere flick could inspire others to learn a new language. Time binged watching the Oscar winner could help practice college film adaptions. A monthly trip to the art-house churns out countless film brain children. Yet, films’ true magic might rest in the knowledge that every single flick could hold the power to change someone's mind or life forever—with an unglorified low-res loop of reels capturing the world at it's best, worst, or pièce de résistance.
