Film Festival “Corporate Bodies” in Den Haag, 11-13th February

Showing films during class makes organizational life more tangible. Films give us catchy images, situations and dialogues to illustrate organizational theory and management and open up space for critical discussion. Furthermore, films can also be analyzed as cultural artifacts that tell us about current societal understandings of organizations. This makes them a valuable resource for teaching that moves beyond cognitive learning. Good films make us feel something about the characters we watch. We suffer with them, we laugh with or about them, we are disgusted by them and so forth. In an educational context, this capacity of films can enable an affective and emotional learning and thus create a more holistic learning experience.

Some fresh inspiration for using films in teaching can be found here: The film festival “Corporate Bodies: Where Film Meets Organization”, taking place on 11-13th February in Den Haag, aims to shed new light on the relation between organization and film. It offers not only an extensive film programme, but also various interesting speakers.
