We are delighted to present a new film on students volunteering at The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum.

The film was made by young filmmaker and Exeter graduate (and former museum intern) Mini Warren, and shows how volunteering at the country's leading cinema museum has enabled students to gain skills, experience and confidence in obtaining jobs in the heritage, media and cultural sectors. Volunteers are able to catalogue collections, design exhibitions, make films, write blogs and social media and many other tasks.

Mini interviewed volunteers past and present to talk about what the museum had meant to them. The museum's curator Phil Wickham also discusses how the enthusiasm and talents of student volunteers have been vital to the musuem's achievements.

If any students are interested in volunteering they should contact Phil at bdc@exeter.ac.uk to discuss further. Thanks to all our fantastic student volunteers over the years!
