FMST 380 - New York Media (Study Group)

Examines the diverse film and media ecosystem of New York, including the interplay between independent film and media-making, community-based media projects, and corporate film and media-making, in order to develop a nuanced understanding of the aesthetic, cultural, political, and economic context in which media operate in New York. Students explore New York’s role as an exhibition hub for globally-produced film and media, applying academic discourses on film and media to the critical analysis of film/media festivals, institutions, organizations. Throughout, students simultaneously engage the historical and contemporary forces shaping various regions of New York, including immigration, racial and economic disparity, rural/urban and upstate/downstate politics, and gentrification and displacement. How do New York’s complex social issues shape, manifest in, and impact its arts and media institutions, its artists and media-makers, and the art/media they create?
