More info The Free Cinema School is an ongoing process of investigation of the relationship between cinematic theory and practice in a London neighbourhood. Over the last year and a half The Free Cinema School has engaged in productions as well as screenings and discussions. We have re-visited the principles of the first Free Cinema movement but also raised questions about what ideas like ‘Free’, ‘Cinema’ and ‘School’ might mean today. We…… are hosting an afternoon study group to discuss and make a script/manifesto/pamphlet that addresses the issues that have come up around the making of a Free Cinema School. We will address questions about the political and pedagogical uses of cinema, the ethics of collaborative film production, cross-cultural ideas about ‘independence’, and what is means to both produce and distribute film in relation to a place. Please bring a short text or quote of interest (from any source) to reflect on your experience or conceptions of what the future of a Free Cinema School might be. The study group is open to newcomers, but previous participants from the Free Cinema School are especially encouraged to attend.
