Research in Film Studies at Newcastle University unites a broad range of specialisms. Find out more about specific interests by visiting our film staff profiles.
There are also a number of research groupings across Schools, the University and regionally:

  • The Film Unit (School of English)
  • Film & Visual Arts (School of Modern Languages)
  • North Eastern Regional Film Seminar (Newcastle, Northumbria, Sunderland, Durham, Teesside, York)

Our staff have an excellent international reputation, reflected in a wide range of publications, and regular invitations to speak at international conferences. Visiting speaker events organised by the Schools, the Research Group in Film & Media speaker series, and at the North Eastern Regional Film Seminar annual symposium all make for a vibrant and stimulating research environment.
Newcastle also provides a base for two scholarly film journals
