Over three centuries of moving image history will be explored in this talk using examples and images from the collection at the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum.
Many of the stories are relevant to Bristol – a UNESCO City of Film. The story focuses upon the audiences and how they have responded to what they have seen.
Speaker: Dr. Phil Wickham, curator at the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, University of Exeter
