Journalism opportunity for film students

Film writers wanted for online culture magazine Coney’s Loft

Coney’s Loft is an online culture magazine based in Liverpool.

We are looking for editorial assistants to write articles about TV and film. Experience is preferred but not essential, as we can support less experienced students by guiding them on more list based articles and offering feedback on their submissions.

A good knowledge of film is desirable.

To be considered, please email – and by Friday 20 January.

Film Studies Presents:



For one night only Film Studies is proud to present Ben Wheatley’s (A Field in England; Sightseers; Kill List) acclaimed adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s High-Rise. Starring Tom Hiddleston this is a modern nightmare that is both a commentary and a warning on contemporary life. Set in the near retro-future, it tells the story of Laing, a brain surgeon who becomes increasingly embroiled in a shadowy world that he cannot control. High-Rise was nominated for Best Screenplay at the British Independent Film Awards.

Date: Friday 23rd September 2016

Time: Film starts at 5:30 pm
