Bradford Film Festival Debate Celebrates Study Of Film

A convention to celebrate the study of film will take place next week as part of the Bradford Film Festival 2007.
The Crash Cinema Symposium, which will feature presentations from academic film experts from across the UK, will run from 10am until 6pm on Wednesday 21 March 2007 in the Cubby Broccoli Cinema at Bradford’s National Media Museum. Admission to the event is free.
The Symposium, now in its sixth year, is a showcase of the co-operation between the Museum, the University of Bradford’s Electronic Imaging & Media Communications (EIMC) Department and Bradford School of Art. The symposium is aimed at students of film at all levels, from postgraduates to amateur enthusiasts.
Mark Goodall, a lecturer in the University’s EIMC Department and the Crash Cinema programme co-ordinator, said: “Crash Cinema contributes to the study of film and this year we are looking forward to the publication of our first book based on the work of the symposium.
“Crash is a forum for experts in the field to discuss how people ‘read’ film, looking at exciting and sometimes bizarre examples of films from early cinema to the modern day.
“The Crash Cinema Symposium is chiefly interested in unearthing political, social and cultural meanings as articulated through the art of film and this is a great event for anyone who is interested in delving deeper into the meanings, messages and styles of cinema.”
