Join us for a great range of new film theory courses at the Hackney Picturehouse this Spring and Summer

From the American Deep South to London on screen and from psychoanalysis and film to an exploration of our relationship with still and moving images – we have a great, diverse range of courses coming up so we do hope you’ll join us again soon for what promises to be an interesting Spring and Summer of film theory at Hackney Picturehouse!

Please note our April, May and June courses are filling up fast so please book soon to avoid disappointment.

Starting later this month we have DEEP SOUTH ON SCREEN, a chance to study the region’s filmic representations through themes such as race, place, gender and history. May sees the start of WRITING ON FILM and STILLS AND MOVIES. Both courses offer a mix of history, theory and optional practical exercises to explore film criticism and the moving image respectively.

In June we consider the human mind and cinema through DREAM SCREEN:PSYCHOANALYSIS AND FILM and then in July we begin QUEER(ING) CINEMA, a course that uses a diverse selection of films to ask questions about sexuality, gender, politics, the body, identity and cinematic form.

For those of us not jetting off on holiday, August offers a different way to explore interesting cities, countries and culture. We begin at home with LONDON ON FILM before crossing the Atlantic to examine CINEMA AND THE AMERICAN LANDSCAPE.

All these courses are now open for bookings online at and advance booking is recommended as places are limited. Bookings can also be made by phone on 0871 902 5734.
