The 2012 Sundance Film Festival in association with the Windrider Forum will be our classroom for this intensive modular course. Week 2 of the Sundance Film Festival showcases some of the freshest new talent in independent filmmaking. Regent students will take part in the Windrider Forum which will provide them with direct access to directors, screenwriters, cinematographers, and actors involved in the creation of the most thought-provoking films at Sundance. You will interact with faculty from Regent University, Pepperdine University, Biola University, and with industry professionals. The purpose of the class is to explore how film creates spiritual, moral, and ethical meaning; reinforces, modifies, and challenges worldviews; serves as aesthetic expression; and creates culture.
