Film Art helps students master the skills of film appreciation by teaching them to analyze and appreciate classic and contemporary films. Enhanced by McGraw-Hill Education’s Smartbook®, Film Art delivers a learning and teaching experience tailored to the needs of each institution, instructor, and student.
Across 12 editions of Film Art, we’ve made reference to many well-known films but also to many that you’ve probably never heard of. This is part of our plan. We want to show that the world of cinema teems with a great many unexpected pleasures, and we hope to get you curious.
