We are delighted to welcome Pamela Hutchinson as a member of the museum's board.
Pamela is a freelance writer, critic and film historian who contributes regularly to Sight & Sound, the Guardian, Criterion, Indicator and the BBC, specialising in silent and classic cinema and women in film. She is a guest lecturer at the National Film and Television School, and a member of both Fipresci and the London Film Critics' Circle. She has written essays for several edited collections and is the author of the BFI Film Classic on Pandora's Box and the editor of 30-Second Cinema (Ivy Press). She also writes the silent cinema website Silent London. She wil be a great asset to our board, who ensure accountability for the museum, advise on its operations and strategy and oversee some disembursement of funds. The board has an independent chair, Patrick Swaffer. Pamela's knowledge and passion for cinema will make an invaluable contribution to advising the museum.
