We have new student curated exhibitions on display in our reception area. As in previous years students have curated exhibitions using the museum's collections for the third year Film Studies module British Screens (EAF 3513). The course looks at the moving image in Britain, in part through the holdings of the museum, and is taught by the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum's Curator, Dr Phil Wickham, and the Head Of Film Studies, Professor Linda Williams.
The students decide their theme within the history of the moving image in Britain, select and research artefacts and design the display. The exhibition, along with a reflective piece on the process and social media posts, forms 50% of their mark on the module.
This year there were 4 curatorial groups:
True Brits: Negotiating Representations of Britain in the Film Industry
Beatrice Amati; Connor Clark, Jenna Hall; Lily Hugh Smith; Naomi Smith
The Strange and Surreal in British Cinema
Isabelle Baker; David Conway; Sophia Pinto; Abi Viney
