Film essays, exhibition Rapperswil (SG) 2010,

Film essay topics are easy to construct provided you do your homework properly. What do you usually do after watching a movie? Probably eat out with friends? Go home and sleep? Or perhaps go for another movie! Well, if you have to submit a film essay the following week, these would probably not be among the best things to do. The moment the movie is over, write down the thoughts that occur to you first, however stupid or insignificant you think they are. For all what you know, they may later be developed to form major areas of study. This is how one develops skills. Write down what you think about the casting, the direction, the actors, the cinematography and other such aspects of the film. A lot of efforts would have gone into producing a three-hour movie; it is only right when these efforts are justly appreciated or criticized. Only when your thoughts are collected will it be convenient for you to construct good film essay topics.

The major parts of a film essay should talk about what can be inferred from the story rather than the story itself. The time in which the concept was conceived should be kept in mind while writing the essay. If the movie is about a particular issue, the situations back when the concept was developed could be explained, if it would support the essay. A on these topics should have more points on theories associated with the particular film. What the theory states and how it has been applied in the film can be analyzed. Hence, the film essay topics should basically induce curiosity in the readers. and can also be based on film analyses.
