Film Appreciation with Shlomo Schwartzberg - Winter 2018

Film Criticism: Where is it Heading?

Examining the history of film criticism, the efficacy or lack thereof of the form and the flaws and biases of those doing the reviewing. What has changed in film criticism over the years? Is it still important? How does the public view film critics and how do film critics view the public, and is there is a future in film criticism, considering that publications ranging from the Detroit News to Newsweek have either eliminated the job or reduced it considerably.

Science Fiction Movies: The Future is Now

Science Fiction films are never actually so much about the future as they are cautionary portraits of present day issues that interested the moviemakers when they were made. From time travel tales to dystopian visions, from apes ruling the world to visits from extraterrestrials to Earth, SF films have tackled all the major philosophical issues and conundrums that concern us. Often, in movies like Metropolis, the original The Day The Earth Stood Still, Planet of the Apes, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Blade Runner, E.T.: The Extraterrestrial and The Matrix, they’ve also connected with the zeitgeist in a way other genre films have not. And with the long anticipated 2017 release of Blade Runner 2049, it’s obvious that SF and its many cinematic incarnations continues to entice fans and critics alike and will likely do so far into our future.

    What is the Progam Cancellation Policy?

    Unless otherwise specified by a program director or within any other documentation, the following cancellation policy and JCC Credit timetable applies to all Prosserman JCC programs:

    For Programs that Meet Fewer Than 3 Times

    Due to the costs and booking commitments associated with short-term programs, we regret that we cannot offer any JCC Credit for programs, classes, or events that meet fewer than three times per programming season. Additionally, The Prosserman JCC cannot be responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for programs missed as a result of personal scheduling conflicts, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control. If you are unable to attend a program in this category, we encourage you to consider your registration fee a form of support for the Prosserman JCC, helping to sustain wonderful programs.

    For Programs that Meet 3+ Times

    You may receive JCC Credit for withdrawal from a program when your cancellation request conforms to the timetable outlined below. Please note there is a $15 processing fee for all transfers and cancellations.

    - Full JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a Prosserman JCC program when a written request is received at least one week before the date of the first class.

    - 50% JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a JCC program when a written request is received before the second class.

    - After the second class, JCC Credit cannot be granted. (However, you may transfer from one class to another of equal or lesser value if there is space available and with the program director's approval.)

    - All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to: Prosserman JCC 9600 Bathurst Street, Vaughan Ontario, L6A 3Z8, Attn: Registration; or by e-mail to [email protected] Please allow three to four weeks for processing of your cancellation request.

    *All JCC programs and events are subject to change or cancellation. However, in the event that the JCC must cancel its own program, refunds will be issued. The policy articulated here applies to Prosserman JCC only, and does not apply to Centre Camp, Prosserman JCC daycare and preschool or Prosserman JCC Fitness and Health.

    What is required to receive the Member Discount on Programs?

    In order to receive the member discount on programs, the Prosserman JCC requires that participants be active members at the time of registration and throughout the duration of the registered program(s).

    Please be advised that the Prosserman JCC operates on a JCC Credit only policy and does not issue any refunds unless otherwise advised and approved by a program director.

    JCC Credit applied to your JCC account can be redeemed for any program at the JCC (not including Centre Camp and Prosserman JCC daycare and preschool), can be used by any family member on your account, and carries no expiration date.

    When does Program Registration close?

    Registration for Prosserman JCC programs closes one week before the start date of a course. For some classes we accept registrations until the program has reached 50% of its classes.

    We recommend registering as early as possible, as many programs have limited space, and other programs depend upon a certain enrollment number to ensure they will run. Your place in a program can only be guaranteed when accompanied by payment.
