Introduction to European Cinema - Knowledge exchange and public engagement activity

Boyle, C. (Speaker)

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesOral presentation


In conjunction with my activities as Course Organiser of the University of Edinburgh course of the same name, I collaborated with the Filmhouse cinema to curate a programme for an annual season of films comprising 18 public screenings per year; I also delivered pre-screening introductions to 17 of these films for the cinema-going general public (with colleagues from the course team contributing the remainder). The programme of films running in the IEC season spotlighted rarely-screened highlights from the history of European cinema since the silent film age to the twenty-first century, taking in the cinematic production of several European countries including France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Russia, the USSR, Czechoslovakia, as well as the UK.
