          Abstract

          In 1990 Kress and Van Leeuwen’s Reading Images began a conversation based upon the practice of teaching image-orientated texts in Australian classrooms. Since then, however, little of this important conversation has been translated into meaningful pedagogical change for the teaching of kineikonic (moving image) texts in Australia. From state-run primary schools to national postgraduate film education institutions, the primary tool used to initiate students into the potential to create meaning through film – the shot-type list – has remained relatively unchanged. This article proposes an updated pedagogical tool – identified as the ‘Meaning Model’ – which draws from contemporary discourses around how films make meaning in seeking to bring understandings of the kineikonic mode into the classroom, in a practical and accessible way.

          Towards an open cinema: Revisiting Alain Bergala's The Cinema Hypothesis within a global field of film education

          This paper reconsiders The Cinema Hypothesis and the propensity of Alain Bergala's cine-pedagogy to serve as an agent of interconnectivity within a slowly emergent global field of film education. Drawing upon some of the debates surrounding de-Westernizing film studies (Bâ and Higbee, 2012), this study explores notions of the global before situating a re-evaluation of The Cinema Hypothesis within that frame. Analysis focuses in particular on Bergala's: (1) particularized approach to cinema; (2) insistence upon a proximity between theory and practice; (3) asystematized approaches to analysis; (4) problematic relationship with canons; and (5) theory of disruption.
