To address socio-political and cultural exclusion, present in current film programmes, means also finding strategies through film education to address diversity and representation. Through the images produced in film education, we need to constructively address methods and conventions in our own field that will enable and encourage inclusive filmic strategies that confront different forms of exclusion in contemporary society. Film has been appropriated in many disciplines: anthropology (visual ethnography), medicine, social justice and human rights programmes, also in numerous fields in the social sciences where its primary use is as an instrument to document: as a technique for recording as opposed to a method of interrogation. In other words, film is principally seen as a recording device rather than as a mode and a form that is capable of determining meaning in and of itself – as a structure for creating meaning through form not just as a vehicle for content. This presentation proposes a new and innovative form of bringing film practice and pedagogy in relation to the socio-cultural issues of migration and global displacements of communities. This approach further functions in the film education curriculum for “unlearning” conventions of filmmaking. We will present examples from the exchange programme between film educations at the Wits School of Arts (Witswatersrand University) in Johannesburg and Valand Academy, Göteborg.
