7th British Silent Cinema Festival

15-18 April 2004

Broadway Media Centre, Nottingham

The AHRB Centre for British Film & Television Studies in association with Broadway Media Centre, Nottingham and the British Film Institute

 A special programme of seminars and meetings with festival visitors will take place throughout the festival, also open to accredited students who are not bursary holders. This will offer a unique opportunity to engage with new research methods and themes, and with a range of UK and international experts, in relation to the main theme of this year's festival, 'British Silent Cinema and World War 1'.

The bursaries will cover accommodation and subsistence costs for the four days of the festival. Bursary holders will be expected to complete a writing assignment based on their experience at the festival, for presentation at next year's event.

Applications are invited from UK-based postgraduate students working in this field, giving details of current enrolment in a higher education institution, an academic CV and a brief statement of reasons for wishing to apply for a bursary. The application should include an indication of approval from the applicant's supervisor.
