Film and Television MA students showcase their final curatorial projects
Television, Film and Moving Image 5 July 2017
Westminster Film and Television postgraduate students worked together to design and develop an engaging programme of exhibitions and film screenings taking place from 11-14 July in various venues including London Gallery West on the Harrow Campus and in room UG05 on the Regent Campus.
The programme will present the following six student-led projects, covering different themes:
Truth Be Screened, will present a film programme on true stories and real events, reflecting on cinema’s pivotal role in how we learn and understand recent history.
Through their Lenses, is a series of exhibitions and screenings regarding the re-thinking of female representation in films, through the eyes of women.
Kiki & Her Documentaries is an exhibition and screening programme focused on film works directed by Kiki Tianqu Yu, a Chinese independent filmmaker.
The Third Space will focus on film and moving image works exploring dreams and memories. This four-day cinematic exhibition and screening programme provides an intimate space where cinema works as a brain machine.
Film as a Mirror presents an exhibition about the relationship between audience identity and the film world.
Cinema and urban culture in Shanghai focuses on Shanghai, the birthplace of Chinese cinema, from 1912 to 1949.
