Jason Wood is the Artistic Director of Film at HOME, Manchester’s (and the UK’s) exciting new cross-arts venue – and a BIG fan of archive film. The North West Film Archive is delighted to have him as Guest Curator, bringing a completely fresh eye to the collection, and resulting in some eclectic choices. This one-off screening at Archives+ in Manchester Central Library is an opportunity to enjoy a programme of short films from the NWFA, selected and introduced from the unique point of view of a cinephile, and an incomer!
Jason has over twenty years of experience in the UK film industry, and a strong affiliation with the cultural and independent sector. Before working at HOME, he was the Programming Manager at Picturehouse, Director of Programming at Curzon Cinemas, and also took a lead role in acquisitions for Artificial Eye.
Tickets are free via Eventbrite.
24th June 2015, Wednesday 5.30pm
Presented by Bob Dickinson and Marion Hewitt, with films from the NWFA, and a display of documentary material from the Ray Gosling Archive at Nottingham Trent University, and Manchester Libraries, Information and Archives.
Ray Gosling (1939-2013) was one of the most original presenters on British television screens as well as on the radio. He was also a great writer. This free event, curated by his friend and colleague Bob Dickinson, brings together material from Ray’s extensive archive of documents and meticulous notes, with extracts from some of his best TV documentaries, made between the 1960s until the 1990s. Many of them are about places, and many of those places are in the North West. One of Ray’s talents was to get under the surface of the English communities during the time when “industrial” as a way of describing them was giving way to “post-industrial”. Throughout, Ray meditated on change, and focused on people as a way of measuring it. He loved talking to them, finding out about them, and, when justice was lacking, fighting for their rights. He could be hilariously funny, he could get angry, but he never patronised anyone.
Tickets are free via Eventbrite.
