For our reopening we have four new student curated exhibitions on display in our reception area. As in previous years students have curated exhibitions using the museum's collections for the third year Film Studies module British Screens (EAF 3513). The course looks at the moving image in Britain, in part through the holdings of the museum, and is taught by the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum's Curator, Dr Phil Wickham, and the Head Of Film Studies, Professor Linda Williams.

The students decide their theme within the history of the moving image in Britain, select and research artefacts and design the display. The exhibition, along with a reflective piece on the process and social media posts, forms 50% of their mark on the module.

This year's exhibitions are:

A Post-War Look at Fan Culture Through Time

Gokuladasan Kalapthy, Daisy Pepperell and Loren Smith

Palace of Dreams: Bill Douglas and the Memories of Cinema

Lucca Victor Aburad and Tom Meadham

The Case of the Three Quintessential Detectives: Onscreen Sleuths from British Minds

Greta Brambilla, Ellie Gibson, Billy Harris and Jack Walton

British Mythic Figures Through the Ages

Coco Brown, James Dolman, Joe Harvey and Lily Muirhead

Many thanks to their students for all their hard work. We had to make some changes to the way we organise the practical assignment due to the pandemic but they coped brilliantly.
