The English department Film Club meets every fortnight on Thursday evenings, at 18h15, in room B.112 (Uni Bastions). Please note, however, that during the academic year 2020-2021, on account of Covid-19 the film club will take place online (until further notice). Although the films are always linked to a course or seminar, all students of the English Department are welcome at any time.
The screenings will take place on our Discord server starting at 7pm.
Theme for this semester: She did that! Womxn Film Makers Crossing Boundaries
The theme for this semester is "She did that! Womxn Film Makers Crossing Boundaries" and each week will have a specific sub-theme. The cool thing is that you get to pick the film for each session: on the Monday preceding the Thursday screening, we will make a poll available on our Instagram page and you will get to vote for your favorite film from a batch of pre-selected films. Don't hesitate to send us film suggestions, which we will add to our lists!

The ciné-club is part of the activités culturelles of the University. Each academic year, three new film cycles with a particular focus are proposed.
The film studio of the activités culturelles offers several courses in practical film training and editing.
In collaboration with the activités culturelles, cinecursus presents a wide range of courses covering analysis of filmic narratives, the history of cinema, writing and analysis of scenarios and much more.
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.
