Dr Ed Webb-Ingall is a Senior Lecturer on BA (Hons) Film and Screen Studies at London College of Communication.
Ed is a filmmaker and researcher working with archival materials and methodologies drawn from community video. He collaborates with groups to explore under-represented historical moments and their relationship to contemporary life, developing modes of self-representation specific to the subject or the experiences of the participants.
In 2018, Ed completed a practice-based PhD at Royal Holloway University, where he carried out the first in-depth study of the history and practice of community video in the UK.
Ed's research and film practice have resulted in opportunities to present, exhibit and publish his work nationally and internationally. He currently runs the public programme for the London Community Video Archive, at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
In 2020, Ed commenced work on a book to be published by the BFI/Bloomsbury as part of their Screen Stories series, with the title ‘The Story of Video Activism’. His current research is looking at the role of video in response to the housing crisis and is in partnership with The Serpentine Gallery, Grand Union Birmingham, LUX Scotland and Nottingham Contemporary.
