Welcome to the PCC Extension course, Off Hollywood. Over the next few weeks, we'll be exploring the art of film and video, particularly work that falls outside of the traditional Hollywood system. We'll be examining foreign films, documentaries, experimental films, video art, and other less conventional forms of cinematic art.


This is a five-week long course that's divided into five lessons. The lessons consist of reading (including PDF text excerpts) and video (short films and video clips). Each lesson should each take approximately one hour to complete (though of course you can work at your own pace). If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
