Andy joined the MSc in Film, Exhibition and Curation in September 2020. Before joining the university Andy worked as the Senior Film Programmer at the Showroom Workstation in Sheffield, a four-screen independent cinema in the centre of the city.
He holds a PhD in World Cinemas from the University of Leeds. His thesis, titled "A Documentary Like No Other? Harvard's Sensory Ethnography Lab, Embodied Knowledge and the Art of Non-Fiction Film", traces the evolution of sensory ethnography from the earliest uses of film within anthropology to the most recent, and most prominent, iteration of this phenomenon – the Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab. His research interests include documentary history, ethnographic film and experimental film, and the intersections between these different modes of filmmaking practice.
Andy's career to date sits firmly at the intersection of academia and industry, and he has always believed that bringing the two into closer dialogue produces powerful results for both. So he feels very much at home as a member of the FEC team, an innovative programme committed to the exploration of film curation and exhibition using a combination of rigorous academic study, integrated applied project work and critical thinking.
