Student-led Film Festival has launched!!

As part of their module, FLMS2250 – Film Cultures – students are running a film festival in EE1026 across this entire Worcester Week. Admission to the films is free, and a charity box is available for donations in support of RSVP (Rape and Sexual Violence Prevention).

The event kicked off with a brief talk by Lisa, CEO of RSVP explaining the nature of the charity and outlining the great work it does in the West Midlands and Birmingham areas.

The FLMS2250 class have worked tirelessly to organize some great films and cinema-foods are available for more than reasonable prices:


The films kick of at 1pm every day this week, with each day a different theme. Today being Halloween, the theme is obviously HORROR MOVIES!

By the time the film started, there were many more people in the audience. Note the photobomb by the normally photo-shy Paul Elliott. 

The schedule of films for today (31 October) are:

13:00 – Oculus (Mike Flanagan, 2013)

15:00 – The Ring (Gore Verbinski, 2002)

17:30 – The Conjuring 2 (James Wan, 2016)

20:00 – The Babadook (Jennifer Kent, 2014)


Tuesday’s theme is Musicals

Wednesday’s theme is Chick Flicks

Thursday’s theme is British Action Movies

Friday’s theme is still a mystery… more details, when we get them!
