AHRC Research in Film Awards
This film features highlight from the awards ceremony which was held in November 2015 at the British Film Institute in London, to celebrate the announcement of the winners of the AHRC's Research In Film Awards. The evening was hosted by broadcaster and author, Danny Leigh.
A central strand of the activities taking place throughout 2015 to mark the AHRC’s tenth anniversary, the awards attracted nearly 200 entries across the five categories. The shortlisted films featured research undertaken by 17 UK Universities and Research Organisations.
Entries included reconstructions and enactments, animations, installations and gallery pieces, music videos, documentaries, as well as co-produced work including collaborations with community groups.
awards were designed to recognise the creative and innovative work being undertaken at the interface between research and film by world-leading researchers, practitioners and filmmakers in the UK arts and humanities research community.
