My DFA: A favourite film from the Digital Film Archive
Date: 27/10/2015 12:31
Christine works as Short Film Executive at Northern Ireland Screen. Her favourite film is Amélie. In her spare time she directs for the stage and also volunteers as a drama facilitator.
piece of footage from 1959 from a QUB graduation procession. It’s very much of its time. I like the pomp and ceremony of the colourful gowns and the formality of the procession. It’s something that, as a graduating student, you tend not to see. You’re standing in a large hall worried that you’ll trip collecting your degree. So seeing a procession from the past is very unique and special.
The DFA is a really important resource for filmmakers but also a key to our past on film. It’s something we should treasure and nurture.
