Since 1997, students in the Language Departments at The University of Western Australia (UWA) have been working with film making as part of their assessment. In this presentation I would like to introduce the underlying concept behind using short film making in language teaching by using the experiences within the Department of German at UWA as an example. Thereby I will elaborate on the underlying methodology, the rationale, the course objectives, the implementation as well as the evaluation process as a paradigm for a possible wider up take. While the data and the research findings themselves are a powerful persuasion for a generic implementation of this teaching and learning tool, the short film project also has some interesting side effects which are worthy of further consideration.
