What does 'art cinema' mean to modern international audiences? Does it stand for films shown in art house cinemas and festivals or is it a distinctive genre of cinema? This clip-based lecture by Martine Pierquin (Open Studies, University of Edinburgh) offers an overview of David Bordwell's analysis of art cinema narration as well as more recent developments on the subject. Come and discuss whether 'art cinema' is still a useful concept today. Presented as part of University of Edinburgh Open Studies Summer Course: An Insight into the Edinburgh International Film Festival
