Diasporic film in communities: A scoping study of the relationship between screen culture, stakeholders and communities


Principal Investigator: Dr Sarita Malik, Brunel University
Collaborators: British Film Institute
Duration: 2012

The Diasporic Film in Communities project set out to critically examine the role of Diasporic film culture in Diasporic communities. A case study approach was used to explore how three postcolonial publics (African-Caribbean, Chinese and South Asian) mobilise around film, interface with cultural organisations and reflect on their significance as film communities. A range of collaborative activities were held in partnership with the British Film Institute (BFI), including participatory screenings, networking events and a final research seminar.
