Mathrubhumi Media School students organised a webinar on Film Studies on Tuesday. Dr Nithin Kalorth, Associate Professor of Times School of Media, Bennett University conducted the session on Film Criticism in the age of Social Media.
"Anyone can easily share their opinions about a piece of media due to the popularity and accessibility of social media. One must differentiate between opinions and criticism. Social, political and historical backgrounds of a movie constitute its criticism," said Dr Nithin.
The webinar also discussed the perceived notion that to criticise a movie, you need to be trained in film studies.
