Caught in Flux: Housing and Communities in Transition

Hosted under the umbrella of the Urban Film Society (UFS), founded in 2004 by Mark Tewdwr-Jones (UCL Bartlett School of Planning) and currently run by Sonia Arbaci, Elena Bessusi, Jessica Ferm and Nikos Karadimitriou, this is a screening series intended to introduce participants to a diverse range of film making and viewing across the globe.

This year's UFS season is curated in collaboration with Ben Campkin (UCL Urban Laboratory / UCL Bartlett School of Architecture) under the title "Caught in Flux: Housing and Communities in Transition".  Expanding the spectrum of films, documentaries and film-based lectures, it has a particular emphasis on housing and communities, diverse neighborhoods, cities and migration. The screenings provide a space for young filmmakers to present their works, while fostering interdisciplinary and cross-cultural exchange.

Most screenings will be personally introduced by the director(s), who will also discuss the films and the issues they raise with the audience.

Entrance to the screenings is free; all welcome.

Venue: all events are held in the Christopher Ingold Ramsay Lecture Theatre,  20 Gordon Street, WC1H 0AJ.

For further information, see the UFS website, download the programme, or register to the UFS mailing list at http://www.mailinglists.ucl.ac.uk/mailman/listinfo/bartlett-ufs.
