The Centre for Research in Film and Audiovisual Cultures (CRFAC) is a large, vibrant research community of established and emerging scholars and postgraduate students. It is home to two AHRC-funded research networks, and supports critical, historical, analytic and practical research into cinema, television, radio, journalism, video/DVD, interactive platforms and online media.

It also houses a very active Practice as Research Group (PARG), whose members produce research in a variety of forms, from films and photographs to installations, exhibitions, and visual essays. Each year the Centre hosts a major symposium and organises a packed programme of research seminars, roundtable discussions, and film screenings.

There are currently 17 PhD students attached to CRFAC, and the 32 established researchers who belong to the Centre welcome applications from prospective MPhil and PhD research students. For details of the AHRC TECHNE research studentship programme, and of the wide range of CRFAC members’ fields of supervisory expertise, see the Postgraduate Research Opportunities link below.
