The Centre for Research in Film and Audiovisual Cultures (CRFAC) is a vibrant research community of established and emerging scholars and postgraduate students. It supports critical, historical, analytic and practical research into cinema, television, popular culture, radio, journalism, filmmaking, photography, and interactive/online media.
It also houses the Practice as Research Group (PARG), whose members produce research in a variety of forms, ranging from films and photographs to installations, exhibitions, and visual essays. The Centre hosts regular major symposia and organises research seminars, roundtable discussions, and film screenings.
There is a lively cohort of doctoral students attached to CRFAC, including a number of AHRC TECHNE scholars. We offer a wide range of supervisory expertise, and established staff members of the Centre welcome applications from prospective MPhil and PhD research students.
