First, there are people who teach film or cinema studies. These are people who teach you how to become the next Siskel or Ebert, or a future contributor to a scholarly journal like Cinema Journal. Typically, these teachers specialize in a specific era or type of film, and/or films from a particular nation--they are experts on silent films or early talkies, Russian avant-garde films, or McCarthy-era Hollywood films. Then there are film teachers who teach filmmaking or film production, which may, or may not include other screen-based media. These teachers usually have a specific area of specialization, such as direction, screen writing, or cinematography, and they are usually accomplished filmmakers. The path to becoming a film teacher depends on whether or not you are interested in teaching film studies or film production; film professors; film production professors; film studies or cinema studies professors; film studies professors; both film studies and film production professors are expected to teach students at the undergraduate and graduate levels)
