Film Club

The English Department film club is run by members of the students' committee. Films are screened in the multimedia room of the Humanities library, and are preceded by a brief introductory talk (no spoilers). Not all films are adaptations of a literary classic, but some literary connection, or degree of literary interest is to be expected.

A partial list of previous screenings includes Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, Kurosawa's Throne of Blood, John Huston's The Dead, Steve Jacobs's Disgrace, Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula, the Coen Brothers' Blood Simple, Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, Steven Spielberg's Jaws, Roman Polanski's Chinatown, Peter Yates's The Dresser, Joseph Sargent’s Colossus: The Forbin Project, Chris Marker's La Jetée and Steve Box and Nick Park's Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Each year, the screening is themed. The 2017-2018 program was themed Blood and Water. 2018-2019 was  More Human than Human: Monsters, Misfits, and Simulacra. 2019-2020 was the Magical and the Mundane.
