There is no charge for this event.

The aim of this one-day event is to explore approaches to beginning and developing doctoral work that uses the moving image as a major element of a research project at PhD level. We also hope the day will foster a network of practice-based researchers, both in the region and nationally, which crosses disciplinary boundaries and encourages an exchange between people working in different contexts.
