A celebration of films made by practice-based PhD students at London College of Communication. The screenings reveal the creativity and rich diversity of approach that LCC’s research students bring to their practice.
The Screen Research Forum is organised by Professor William Raban and Dr Brad Butler.
Professor William Raban presents a programme of films made by our current LCC students as part of their PhD thesis. The programme shows the great range of imaginative solutions used by our students to present their challenging subjects on screen. Following William’s introduction, the films will be screened and all the research student filmmakers will then be available for a Q&A with the audience.
The films include ‘Queering di Teknolojik’, by CRiSAP PhD student Tim Smith, which was selected for the BFI London Film Festival and received a nomination for the Best Short Film Award. This experimental film is a message from the future. Spoken by the collective digital voice of a group of queer artists and activists, this collaborative project speculates about the possibilities of a temporality yet to come. The film presents a message of hope.
Other films include ‘Thursday War’ (2019) by Margareta Kern, ‘The Names Have Changed’ (2019) by Onyeka Igwe, ‘Sight Unseen’ (2019) by Alessandra Ferrini, ‘Spectrum Notes’ (2020) by Judah Attille.
This event is taking place as part of ‘Sound & Cinema: Past, Present & Future’ – an exhibition and events programme presented by London College of Communication’s Screen School spanning film, VR, games, TV and sound celebrating 125 years of diversity and creativity within the College.
