Film Studies feature at FACT this October

Thanks to a partnership between Liverpool's Foundation for Art and Creative Technology and LJMU's Screen School, Contemporary Balkan Cinema: Cultural Identity and Memory will be brought to FACT this October.

Featuring three recent films from Kosovo, Bulgaria and Croatia, the initiative aims to offer a fresh outlook on contemporary culture in the Balkans and its relationship with the past, and it is running in conjunction with Shona Illingworth’s installation Lesions in the Landscape

The partnership between FACT and LJMU aims to establish links with cultural institutions in the community and create a broader community for learning and knowledge beyond formal education.

Dr Lydia Papadimitriou, Reader in Film Studies said:

"Collaborations with institutions such as FACT offer an excellent opportunity for academics to share our expertise with the wider public. We, in the Screen School and Film Studies, aim to develop such links further and complement the already excellent contributions of Liverpool Art School in this regard."

The three featured films, including two UK premieres are:

Three Windows and A Hanging
