Screen/Play: the theory and practice of film programming

Our highly-popular 12-week training course in the theory and practice of film programming returns to London for Autumn 2017.  

Posted: 08/07/2017

Participants will learn the knowledge and skills to plan, produce and promote their own events, and make their own opportunities to work in the film exhibition industry.

You will think about the meaning and purpose of programming, meet experienced industry professionals and take on practical projects that culminate in running your own film screening events. You’ll also take on a personal research project which will develop your expertise in one area of film culture.

Funded by Creative Skillset and supported by Goldsmiths, University of London.
