Senior Lecturer Douglas McNaughton said: “On the Film & Screen Studies degree, we study screens of all sorts – cinema, television, videogames, smartphones, social media. Little did we know how screens would dominate our lives in 2020. We are amazed and impressed at the way in which our students are attending virtual seminars, keeping themselves motivated, submitting work online, and working independently. These are skills that will be invaluable in the workplace of the future. This digital degree show is a chance to say a heartfelt well done to our students for getting to the end of a uniquely challenging year. ”
