Conversations About Cinema - Thought in Action Online

Conversations About Cinema - Thought in Action returns for a series of free online panel discussions focussing on colonialism. Twice a month we’ll be discussing a film from the MUBI catalogue with special invited experts, students and other online audience members.

Thought in Action Online is a partnership between the Philosophy and Politics teams at UWE Bristol, Watershed and MUBI, which aims to foster deeper conversation about issues and ideas arising in film. All films in the series are available to watch at your leisure on MUBI. You can get three months of free access to MUBI by visiting mubi.com/watershed. MUBI have also recently introduced a discounted student membership for £5.99 per month for university students worldwide.

The related discussions are all free and will take place on Zoom, to take part you will need to book your ticket in advance as spaces are limited. The information on how to log on and join the discussion will be emailed to you a couple of days before the event.

We will publish the guest details for the events as soon they are confirmed so please check back soon.
