Showroom Summer Season

Join us for a series of weekly talks over the summer featuring some of Sheffield’s most esteemed academics from both Sheffield Hallam and the University of Sheffield. Each week we will delve into a new area of cinema circling the globe with a 45-minute talk and discussion.

All the sessions are being run by the academics in their own time to help keep Sheffield’s film community connected while the Showroom is closed. Each talk is free and open to everyone to attend. All the academics ask for in return is to let them know if you enjoy the session and consider making a donation to help us re-open when we can.

Confirmed speakers include:

1 July – Ana María Sanchez-Arce: Almodóvar’s Photographs. Find out more and book your place here.

8 July – Kate-Taylor Jones: Gender, Sex and Class in Modern Korean Cinema. Find out more and book your place here.

15 July – Julia Dobson: Changing identities - Sciamma's 'Girlhood'

22 July – Sarah Alwin and Tim Moffatt: Getting Away With Murder: South East Asian Noir in The Letter (William Wyler, 1940)

29 July – Jennifer Coates: Working From Home, 1960s Style: Gender Roles and the Japanese Studio System

5 August – Chris Hall: Un Homme Qui Dort

12 August – Sheldon Hall: Going to the Gaumont Cinema, Sheffield 1948 – 58

Tickets are free, you will just need to register through Eventbrite to book your place. Each talk will be added to our Eventbrite listings over the coming weeks.
