If any of you are interested in setting up a cine-club, please let me know.
The project was in my mind since some time and it has cropped up again following a conversation with Ashvin Khemraz (lecturer for Principles of Graphic Design). Of course, we would need to have a critical mass in order to kickstart the project as well as people who are willing to participate actively…
So this is just a first ‘appel à manifestation d’intérêt’. If anyone is interested, just drop a line in the comments or send me an e-mail.
I would have liked the project to be owned and driven by you the students, not academics for a variety of reasons:
– You can set up a student association or club and be affiliated to the students’ union (you get funds from them to support the activities of the club;-)
– Without students, such a project would be useless. We need dynamic people to run that and to constitute a regular audience (I’m not saying academics aren’t dynamic but theoretically, students are supposed to be more dynamic… so prove it;-)
– You will benefit from the activities (get opportunities to watch and discuss worthwhile films)
PS: Of course, we’ll be there to help you in the shadows
PPS: It will take some time for the project to take shape… but we can start the process nonetheless
