Filmmaking Research Network (FRN)

The Filmmaking Research Network (FRN) is a UK-Australia initiative funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The project is lead by Joanna Callaghan at University of Sussex, UK with Dr Susan Kerrigan, University of Newcastle, Australia.

The aim of the Filmmaking Research Network is to develop understanding and consolidate the field of filmmaking research by sharing best practice internationally and developing resources. We will examine how the UK and Australia use filmmaking research to generate new knowledge and will produce resources to improve capacity and research infrastructure. The project was launched at Sightlines, 2016 at RMIT with a workshop that involved 25 participants.The network will conduct research and knowledge exchange through workshops, visits, meetings, a public screening, conference panels and a survey. Resources will include a register of films, case studies of best practice, a tool kit, resource lists and a training seminar in reviewing practice research.

We will be launching a survey in 2016 and invite all members to participate.
