‘Using Film to Affect Change: Mental Health, Social Advocacy and the Moving Image’

Press Release: The Pod Collaboration

Film and Television Studies at the University of Warwick are delighted to be partnering with the Pod on a new collaborative research project: ‘Using Film to Affect Change: Mental Health, Social Advocacy and the Moving Image’.

Thanks to a Warwick Fellowship award, we welcome research student and filmmaker, Hande Cayir, to undertake this Practice as Research PhD. It’s a collaboration between Michele Aaron (Reader in Film and Television and Director of Screening Rights Film Festival) and Christine Eade, Manager of The Pod. Part of Coventry City Council, The Pod has successfully reframed what should be expected of mental health services. Film, which has played an important role in its advocacy work, is an area they are keen to develop.
