Launch of 'There's No Place Like Home' at the symposium 'Le Cinema Cent Ans de Jeunesse'

Centre for Film Aesthetics and Cultures (CFAC), and the Department of Film, Theatre and Television invite you to the symposium:

Le Cinema Cet Ans de Jeunesse: Pedagogy, Research and Play

When: Tuesday 24 October 2017, 4pm–6pm
Where: Bulmershe Theatre, Minghella Studios, Whiteknights Campus, University of Reading RG6 6BT

In 1995, the Cinémathèque Française set up ‘Le Cinéma, Cent Ans de Jeunesse’, a young  people’s film-making programme to celebrate the centenary of cinema. In this symposium, Mark Reid, Head of Education at the BFI, will discuss the operations of the ‘Cent Ans’ inititative and the way in which it brings together academics, school teachers, and industry professionals. He will be joined by Stephanie Hemelryk Donald, who has worked with school groups through ‘Cent Ans’ in both Australia and the UK.

Stephanie's new book, There's No Place Like Home: The Migrant Child in World Cinema (IB Tauris) will be officially launched at this event.
