Filmic Experience

Abstract

In the article “Sinemasal Deneyim” (Filmic Experience) (2009), which had quite an impact in film studies, Francesco Casetti explores the experience of the spectator in front of the screen rather than focusing on cinema, with its developing technology and production systems, and the impact that cinema has produced. Today the experience of viewing a film is shifting from theatres to other arenas. Casetti opens a window to this transition and discusses in detail the position of film studies in the context of recent developments.
