Intercultural Film Education Online

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


Film education is a concept that encompasses the ability to analyse the content and the context of films, to interpret and critically examine their meanings, and to produce a film of one's own. The research in film education has resulted in the development of various teaching practices and strategies, many of which are available online in the form of free and reusable open educational resources. Currently, the ongoing migration, expansion of online/distance education and internationalisation of schools and universities are influencing the way open educational resources about films are designed. This paper aims to understand pedagogic practices of the online open educational resources within the intercultural film education context. This research focuses on a single film education website and explores its open educational resources from an intercultural pedagogic perspective. The research data includes 160 Film Guides, which are analysed through qualitative content analysis. The findings of this study reveal that, although the website's open educational resources succeed in some of the aspects of intercultural education, they lack activities and discussion based on the international nature of filmmaking and cultural exchange and dialogue, which are fundamental aspects of interculturalism.
