Doctoral Student Films

It is with great pleasure that you are invited to see a range of the fantastic film related works produced by our PhD students. Through a mixture of screenings and other live events you will be able to see a range of films ‘in progress’, completed films/documentaries and other aspects of the moving image research being pursued by our students. The different ‘in conversations’ and  Q&As with artists/filmmakers/curators (all PhD candidates at different stages of their registration) will help to highlight the excellent work that is being produced. Please do sign up below to participate in our live events as this will of course help to make them even richer.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Send us any feedback!
