I’ve been on the committee since the cinema started and got involved because having seen the Ritz Cinema turn into Morrisons and other film clubs come and go, I wanted to get involved with a group of amazing enthusiastic cinema lovers.
As Film Manager my job is to produce the program of films for the three seasons. It’s a great job because I get to watch as many films as I can, and taking into consideration suggestions from our audience and the committee, I come up with a final list. We carefully consider the order in which we screen the films so that we get a good balance of the different genres. It’s also my responsibility to check the DVD release dates and source the licences.
Outside of the cinema I work part time at the University of Brighton as a technical consultant. I’m also an exhibition chemist!, which involves staging Science shows at schools and science festivals in the UK and round the world.
