Remembering 1960s British Cinema-going will co-organise, with local partners, more than 40 events around the UK to present the fascinating results of the earlier project. Our partners will include local civic and history societies, film clubs, University of the Third Age members and schools. Events will usually take the form of a screening of a 1960s film followed by a talk from the project team or a lecture. In both cases, there will be ample time for discussion and questions. Any organisation interested in collaborating in this way is invited to contact the project director, Melvyn Stokes.
Remembering 1960s British Cinema-going’ is a new Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded project that will last from 1 May 2017 to 30 April 2018. Based at University College London, its purpose is to expand awareness of the findings of the earlier AHRC-funded research project (2013-15) on ‘Cultural Memory and British Cinema-going of the 1960s.’ This collected almost 1000 respondents' memories in the form of anonymised questionnaires and interviews.
