It is the hub for research activity in Film Studies both within the Faculty of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences and across the university.

The Centre also has strong collaborative links with the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, the largest university research collection on cinema and popular culture in the UK.

We run a regular seminar series showcasing research from visiting speakers, academics working on film and film-related projects from across the University of Exeter, and the research of our community of postgraduate students. Details can be found on our website under News and events.
