About

The Arts PGR film club holds monthly film screenings which will involve a presentation and Q&A led by PGRs from the Faculty of Arts at the University of Leeds. It is run by Maddalena Moretti and Rachel Johnson, from the School of Italian.

Our aim is to give PGRs the opportunity to present on and/ or discuss a film which everyone in the room will have just seen.  We are targeting those who work on film so that they can present and gain feedback on their research, but we also hope to involve those whose research engages with film in whatever measure, or who may wish to move on to researching film later.

We send out calls for film presentations every six months. However, if you’re interested in presenting a film, don’t wait for us to get in touch! Contact us either via email or on this website and we’ll see about including you in the program.

We are generously supported by the Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures, as well as the Languages Cultures and Societies PGR Experience Fund.
