Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures


University of Leeds Logo


The Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures sponsors cultural events, seminar series, conferences and research projects in all aspects of world cinemas and digital cultures. It also currently offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules and programmes in aspects of film studies, as well as undergraduate modules in digital cultures. (Taught programmes in digital cultures may be offered in the future.)

The Centre was known as the Centre for World Cinemas from its inception in 2000 until July 2015. The first of its kind in the country, it has distinguished itself by taking a positive, inclusive and democratic approach to film studies, specialising in the situated study of cinematic forms. Since August 2015 the Centre has expanded its remit to embrace digital cultures. This is in recognition of the huge importance of digital technologies for film production and distribution, as well the need to engage with the wealth of creativity that new media has provoked in all sorts of different cultural contexts.

For more information on what we do, please contact the Centre’s Directors, Dr Thea Pitman at (semester 1, 2015-16), or Professor Paul Cooke at (semester 2, 2015-16 onwards).
