Unique factual and fictional film event,The Media and Conflict Interchange, will be held from the 7 to 10 October at the Pictureville cinema in the National Media Museum.
Four film screenings will be accompanied by talks from academic speakers; including Paul Rogers, author of 'Why We're Losing the War on Terror'.
The Interchange is a lively and highly entertaining event, but with a very serious focus: The relationship between the media and real-world conflict.
Tickets are free for a limited number of University staff and students.
The event aims to:
- Critically examine the place of media and its ability to impact on and represent real-world issues of conflict and identity.
- Offer a high quality series of materials and talks, for students studying Media or Conflict related subjects at The University of Bradford, University staff, academic networks and the public at large.
- 'Cross-polinate' between the staff and students of Peace Studies, Bradford Media School, Creative Technology, outside organisations and the public.
- Screen some excellent films in a wonderful venue, and have an opportunity to discuss them!
This event is organised by the Bradford Media School, with collaborators from Peace Studies and The National Media Museum. The screenings and talks are free to Bradford University students and staff; others pay the normal cinema charge.
