The Centre’s activities aims to be a crossroads for academic discussion of film, with emphasis on the engagement in debate and exchange of ideas (both on and off-campus).
Debate and exchange of ideas: The Centre welcomes scholars as visiting fellows or temporary residents, and invites them to make use of the infrastructure and resources of the Centre.
Wherever possible the Centre will aim to let the wider UBC community benefit from the presence of its visitors, by organizing seminars, workshops, visiting lectures, presentations, or peer-to-peer debate.
