Cineliteracy: How to Define Movie Culture? How to Promote Cinematic Knowledge

My new big project deals with the important but little known subject of  cineliteracy: how to define it and how to promote it?

I am concerned with ways and methods of using the educational system to disseminate cinematic knowledge and appreciation of film more widely and more efficiently.

In terms of pleasure and meaning, mass popular culture may be more significant than high culture.

Scholars have studied literacy by using the concept of the great tradition, namely constructing a list of canonical works (classic and modern books) that will inform and instruct individuals about what they need to know.

Among several goals, I wish to give some popular and commercial movies the same status, attention, consideration, and evaluation, which have been reserved for classic (usually foreign) art films.
