Broadcast is an academic discipline that deals with various theoretical, historical, and critical approaches to films.  Film studies is concerned with exploring the narrative, artistic, cultural, economic, and political implications of the cinema.  In searching for these social-ideological values, film studies takes a series of critical approaches for the analysis of production, theoretical framework, context, and creation. In this sense the film studies discipline exists as one in which the teacher does not always assume the primary educator role; the featured film itself serves that function. Television studies is an academic discipline that deals with critical approaches to television.
