22 May 2013 3:00PM - 22 May 2013 4:00PM
: Speaker: Prof. Duncan Petrie (University of York)
This paper discusses the significance of film schools to the wider fields of British film and media history, and the development of its cinema as a creative and cultural form. Although Film Schools have had an important impact on wider stylistic trends, production practices, and film-making movements in Britain, within most historical accounts of cinema, film-makers’ education has tended to be treated as a minor biographical detail or is simply assumed to be one aspect of on-the-job skills-acquisition. This paper examines these issues, and also looks at the Scottish Film School experience, and it relevance to Northern Ireland
