Film Club

The English department Film Club meets every fortnight on Thursday evenings, at 19h00, in room B.112 (Uni Bastions). Although the films are always linked to a course or seminar, all students of the English Department are welcome at any time. Feel free to bring along drinks and nibbles, or to join your fellow students for a nightcap after the screening. The film club is a great place for students to meet, chat, and get to know each other outside the classroom.

About the Film Club


We are always interested in your feedback and are grateful for your comments, ideas and suggestions. Please contact Patrick Jones.

The Beginning of the Film Club

A few years ago, we organised two informal film screenings related to the first-year introductory lecture. The enthusiasm of the students who attended these two evenings prompted us to establish a film club on a regular, weekly basis, organised by Valerie Fehlbaum and Michael Röösli.

In the autumn of 2009, student Lilia Aghzafi and PhD student Anna Iatsenko took over the film club.  More recently the film club has been organised by PhD student Patrick Jones.

Although the screenings - for legal reasons - are always linked to a current seminar or lecture, they are open to every member of the English department.
