UEA’s Philosophy Society will be hosting the second annual PPL film festival, set to take place in March. The PPL film festival is a weeklong event comprised of a series of film screenings followed by a 20 to 30 minute discussion led by a member of staff or external speaker. Running from the 11-16 March, the event will be free to all UEA students and refreshments will be provided.
The festival will cover a range of differing themes and topics across varying disciplines. Last year’s festival included talks on Lacanian Psychoanalysis, non-human personhood and the UCU lecturer strike.
The society’s Secretary, third year Film and Television student Salah El Oweidy, said that in ‘presenting different ideas through film, we want students to discover more about both cinema and the different fields it touches.’
