Talking Shop 2017 at LCC

Talking Shop 2017, kindly hosted by Dean of Screen at LCC, Larra Anderson, turned out to be a great day of stimulating presentations and engaging conversations. The range of relevant subjects covered was bold and inclusive, from the keynote on Film Practice as Research and a thought-provoking session on Documentary Ethics, to a discussion about Embedding Professional Qualifications within a Curriculum.
