U3APP Friday Film


Last updated Friday 25 November 2022.

This course description applies to both Friday Film classes.
Think of them as one class with two options for attending.
You can switch from one class to the other on any week.
Only enrol in one class, the one you will mostly attend,

To enrol in 5B02 Friday Film ONLINE or 5B10 Friday Film F2F you must have renewed your membership for 2023 by Sunday 11 December 2022. The first opportunity you will have to enrol in either Friday Film class for 2023 will be at 11am on Friday 16 December 2022. 

1 – 5B02 Friday Film ONLINE
Watch the film during the week. Attend the class discussion at 10am Friday on ZOOM

2 – 5B10 Friday Film F2F
Watch the film in Room 3 at the Mary Kehoe Centre at 1pm on Friday, then discuss it,

Swapping Classes
Whichever class you join you can swap to the other one on any particular Friday.
The class you attend will depend on what other committments you may have on Friday.
Both classes have the same film each week. On rare occasions the films are different.
If you attend either class you will be marked as present for the class you are enrolled in.

Time Commitment
5B02 – 2 hrs to watch the film at home, 1 hr for the class discussion at 10am Friday.
5B10 – 2 hrs watching the film at the MKC at 1pm. A half hour discussion after the film.

Film Delivery
5B02 – Watch the film on your computer or TV at home during the week. On Friday attend a one hour ZOOM session to discuss the film with other class members.
5B10 – Watch the film in Room 3 at MKC. Attend the half hour discussion afterwards.

Saturday Email
Each Saturday you will be sent an email with the name of the film for the following Friday. You then need to decide if you will attend 5B02 or 5B10 the following Friday. Whichever class you attend you’ll be marked as present for the class you are enrolled in. There is no need to join both classes as this will exclude others from the class.

Course Tutor
David Robinson is the class tutor. Sometimes a class member will volunteer to lead the ZOOM discussion on a film they have selected for the class to watch.

Film Choice
To give you an idea of the films you will see below are the films shown during 2022.
Films chosen are determined by a number of factors not known at the start of the Term.

  • Is the film available on DVD and can I borrow a copy?
  • Is the film available to watch for free on the internet?
  • Is the film available on a reputable/reliable streaming service?
  • Has the film already been shown in recent years?
  • Is the film length about 2 hours or less?
  • Is it a highly rated film on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb?
  • If the film has a lower rating is it a good film for our demographic?
  • Does the film deal with issues likely to generate a good discussion?
  • Are class members unlikely to have seen the film recently?
  • Has the film been shown to class members in recent years?

All these factors are taken into account when selecting a film.
Below is a list of the films selected in 2022 to give you an idea.
