our Course (For Schools)

Teenagers today are growing up in a world that is dominated by images and gadgets.


In our day-to-day urban lives, how often are we conducting ourselves under the gaze of some kind of camera or surveillance device? CCTV, webcams, cell phones, digital cameras, satellites, and possibly many other kinds of devices that we may not be even aware of, surround us.


Digital technology has changed reality, blurring the lines between science and art. Images are driving this change, and driving us to the extent that we possibly do not comprehend,


Is the standard school curriculum – even with all traditional essentials in place – making enough room for students to understand the world they live in?


No matter what path their careers eventually take, Ctrl Alt Cinema’s specially designed school course will, we believe, equip students to see with precision; and make sense of the new reality that surrounds them.


Seeing clearly today makes navigating tomorrow just a little less difficult – and a little more rewarding.




We have a purpose, not a syllabus.



Our aim is to provide students with a well-rounded understanding of cinema as an art form. This study of cinema is interdisciplinary: it is complementary to the study of other arts subjects (notably theatre, literature, photography, fine art), languages, psychology, politics, history, international studies, ethnic and intercultural studies, philosophy, marketing, sociology, and computer science.


Our program fosters specific transferable skills of:


- Research


- Writing


- Visual literacy


- Creativity


- Collaboration


- Problem-solving


- Critical thinking



The study of films helps students in a variety of vocations such as publishing, media, editing, teaching, information technology, cultural affairs, public policy, as well as business. In all these different kinds of employment: students successfully apply the skills of analysis, attention to detail, creativity, and ingenuity that is fostered, on their own terms.


The study of Cinema could help students in a variety of vocations such as artistic practice, media, publishing, critical thinking, cultural affairs, public policy, information technology, as well as business. In all these different kinds of professions, students successfully apply the skills of analysis, attention to detail, creativity, and ingenuity that are fostered on their own terms. This is the primary objective for designing this program/course.



A National Award-winning filmmaker will curate the course.
