City, Essay, Film is a series of discussions and screenings hosted by UCL Urban Laboratory to examine the concept and practice of the ‘urban essay film’.

Bringing together filmmakers, researchers, and critics, this one-day symposium will consider the interstices of literary, cinematic and urban culture through the lenses of pioneering film essayists and a new generation of artists producing experimental documentary works as polemic and critique on the city.

City, Essay, Film will continue throughout June and July with a series of screenings. A launch screening takes place on Thursday 6 June, with other screenings following on 8 June, 10 June, 24 June and 9 July.

This event is curated by David Anderson and Jordan Rowe, and is financially supported by the UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities.
