Cinema for All on Campus

oscars - CopyThe School of Arts has been awarded a grant from the Annual Fund to support the purchase and installation of a 9m x 4.5m microperforated screen in 03MS01 in the Rik Medlik Building at Stag Hill Campus.  This facility will enhance the existing equipment in the room to make it feasible to run a regular programme of professional film screenings, providing all students, staff and general public with an opportunity to engage with inspiring, educational and thought-provoking films which cross boundaries of language, culture and genre.  A programme of film screenings and associated events will be scheduled next session – details will be published in September on www.surrey.ac.uk/arts

Hundreds turned out to see Oscar winner Chris Benstead who visited Surrey on 15 May to share his experiences of working on Gravity, followed by a screening of the film on a temporary screen.
