Global society, with its rapid flow of immigrants and information, strongly demands education in media literacy through a university education, which means the ability to communicate with others interactively and to judge information subjectively. This paper describes at first the author’s educational practice for education on visual media based on the theories of visual anthropology then highlights how education on visual media through anthropological perspectives could be responsive to social demands. The process of filmmaking includes three steps: planning, shooting, and editing, which can be understood as the research plan, fieldwork, and ethnographic writings carried out in the process of anthropological work. Building relationships with the subjects is indispensable for filmmakers as well as for anthropologists. The existence of a camera between the filmmaker and the subject indicates that their personal negotiation will be made public. Furthermore, the filmmaker should be conscious about the responses from the audience since their products will be shown in a public space, such as through the Internet. Students of filmmaking could empirically learn the process of rapport-building with their subjects and their commitment to society by imagining their public audience. Moreover, their film products may indicate their concerns and the characteristics of their relationships. Thus, the education on anthropological filmmaking not only has the possibility to contribute to education in media literacy but also to encourage students to build relationships with their own society and promote mutual understanding of each other.
