Students volunteers often make films for us inspired by the museum and some examples are below.

The following film from 2019 by Volunteer Elliana Hamer is a guide to new students on making the most of the museum during their time at the University of Exeter.

We are delighted to show this film by student volunteer (and member of campus filmmaking society XTV) Elliana which is an introduction and guide to using the museum for new and returning University of Exeter students during the course of their studies.

For our 20th anniversary in 2017 we also commissioned a student film from filmaker and former student Mini Warren about students volunteering at the museum and how it has helped their careers in the Heritage and Culture sectors.  You can find details here.

Here is a selection of short films created for the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum by our volunteers and other students.
