Manual on Film Evaluation.
Jones, Emily S.
Anyone who purchases, rents, programs or uses films in any way must have access to information about them, and must develop criteria for selecting the right film for the right place. This manual is intended to explain what evaluation is, how to go about it, and how to work with a committee or an organization in a program of evaluation. It defines the terms used in evaluating films, and describes some of the attributes of a good film. Techniques for organizing an evaluation committee are discussed and a variety of evaluation forms are presented and discussed. The preparation of a synopsis of a film's content is described. The technical quality of a film and the intended audience are considerations in evaluating a film; their effect on a film's usefulness is discussed. The manual concludes with a description of the final rating process and points out that some factors may need re-evaluation. (Author/JY)
