Screen Research Forum

Man reading a book
Available Light (2016) by William Raban

The Screen Research Forum is based at London College of Communication (LCC) and is organised by Professor William Raban.

The forum had its inaugural presentation at LCC on 5 October 2016 and serves as an arena for critical debate and enquiry into screen-based arts practice (film and television).

It is primarily aimed at the needs of the growing PhD community at LCC, and it is envisaged that students will play a leading role in programming the forum.
