Clare co-ordinates and delivers Watershed’s cinema programme of screenings, festivals, and manages the touring and distribution. She also handles guests and special events and delivers a portfolio of engagement and talent development initiatives. Prior to Watershed, Clare has worked in events management and film exhibition for many years, including organisations such as The Cambridge Arts Picture House, Encounters Short Film & Animation Festival and the BFI Film Festival. Exploring film as a mode of communication and reading film as a cultural text, exploring questions of identity and ideology and the power of shared experience are at the heart of Clare’s passion for film. She has also spent some time teaching Film Studies in Cambridge.
