 -  Joanna Hogg

Noted filmmaker, screenwriter and director Joanna Hogg is set to bring the silver screen to Cambridge this month, as the University of Cambridge’s first ever Filmmaker in Residence.

Joanna Hogg, who is one of the world’s leading contemporary filmmakers working in the tradition of “narrative art cinema”, will hold a sequence of film masterclasses for students at the University, together with public screenings and discussions of her works. There will also be a symposium on Joanna Hogg’s career in cinema held on 18 May.

Joanna’s residency is being hosted by the University of Cambridge Centre for Film and Screen, which provides a home for the University’s teaching and research in Film and Screen Studies, and which holds an array of seminars, screenings, discussions and events for students and the public throughout the year.

The Cambridge Arts Picturehouse cinema is collaborating with the Centre for Film and Screen to showcase a complete retrospective featuring Joanna Hogg’s three feature films, Unrelated (2007), Archipelago (2010) and Exhibition (2013), as well as a special screening of her first film, Caprice (1986), which stars a then little-known Tilda Swinton.
