Biography

Kamila Kuc is Course Leader for BA (Hons) Film and Screen Studies at London College of Communication. She is a filmmaker whose hybrid practice stems from the belief that although we are unable to change our pasts, we have the power to shape our future narratives.

In her work, Kamila employs speculative histories, memories and dreams to subvert dominant narratives of history and create new points of reference for the future. Set within the realm of social choreography, her practice considers complex ways to relate to one another through embodied, trust-building practices that defy the traditional notion of authorship and collaboration.

Kamila is a 2021 Jarman Award and IWC Schaffhausen Filmmaker Bursary Award in association with the BFI nominee. Her first feature film, What We Shared (2021), premiered at the 65th BFI London Film Festival and was described as one of ‘the finest examples of UK filmmaking’ by Festival Scope.

Kamila's films have screened at many festivals and galleries globally and she is also the author and editor of numerous books and articles on experimental media, including Visions of Avant-Garde Film (Indiana University Press). She is the Founder and Director of Dark Spring Studio, a London-based production company dedicated to the creation and distribution of artist moving image works that are committed to enacting social change.

Prior to joining LCC, Kamila was a Course Director for Media Production programme at Coventry University. She also taught at various higher education institutions across the UK, most recently, Goldsmiths and Southbank University.
