The mini film festival ‘The Child on Film’ is a joint initiative of world cinema researchers in FASS, and ‘The Dorothy Project’ (ARC Future Fellowship Donald, 2012-2016). We aim to watch and discuss diverse films together as an extended community of researchers and critics. We hope to find common ground for discussing the role of the child in world cinema, and to use that conversation as a jumping off point for further consideration of genre, style and cultural specificity. The films have been selected by the presenters of each title, so this is a random curation of like minds. Students of cinema, members of the public and colleagues are all welcome to join us for the weekend.
