Making Films for Your Research: Innovative Audio-Visual Practices

Making Films for Your Research: Innovative Audio-Visual Practices

Birkbeck Cinema, 10.00-17.30 on Saturday, 17 November 2018, followed by a wine reception

Film-making research is a form of practice research that enquires into production practices, techniques, modes and genres used in cinema, television, arts practice and online. The outputs are films that may include fiction, documentary and hybrid forms. Film-making research is a developing area and films produced within the academy are growing in number. There is an increasing engagement with film-making as research method and films as outputs by researchers from a range of disciplines. Film can provide a powerful means to explore issues, disseminate research and create impact.

In this event, we will screen examples of innovative audio-visual film-making research practice, have presentations by film-maker-researchers and hold round tables.

Presenters include:

  • Florence Ayisi (University of South Wales)
  • Joanna Callaghan (University of Sussex)
  • Emma Davie (University of Edinburgh)
  • Lily Ford (Birkbeck, University of London)
  • Chloe Galibert-Laine (Ecole Normale Superieure de Paris)
  • Jasmine Gideon (Birkbeck, University of London)
  • Catherine Grant (Birkbeck, University of London)
  • Lynda Nead (Birkbeck, University of London)
  • Alex Nevill (San Francisco State University)

This training event arises out of the research undertaken by the AHRC funded Film-making Research Network (FRN). The FRN seeks to improve understanding and consolidate film-making research through sharing research, clarifying methods and approaches and providing resources to improve capacity and infrastructure. 

Generously supported by the Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE). The event will be documented and form part of an online resource to ensure that students at other CHASE institutions also have access to these materials, ideas, and discussions.

This event is free and doctoral students interested in attending should email Matthew Barrington (mbarri02@mail.bbk.ac.uk).
