Film form and narration, introductory course

7.5 credits

How is film told? With which means does film create excitement, horror or comedy and how should we understand film style in different eras or in individual directors? This course is aimed at those who want basic orientation in the film's idiom, storytelling and style. We laps lectures with analytical exercises to approach the language of the film from different perspectives. Style and storytelling are also set in film-historical contexts and linked to the film industry and media culture.

The course language is Swedish and you need to have passed Swedish on level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages to be eligable for admission.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
