"New York on Film" is a new course under the auspices of the New York Professional Outreach Program (NYPOP). New York City's celluloid skylines have long been a crucible for the seventh art, and the spring season includes rich offerings such as Focus on French Cinema; the Havana Film Festival; the Manhattan Short Film Festival; and the celebrated Tribeca Film Festival, a highlight of the festival circuit with new discoveries, world premieres, videogame programming and discussions. Students will have the opportunity for contact with some these events and with "insiders" - such as, curators, producers, distributors, critics, screenwriters, film faculty, historians, conservation specialists, and filmmakers - through possible visits to the Film Society of Lincoln Center, the American Museum of the Moving Image, the Museum of Modern Art, and the City Cinematheque, CUNY-TV.
