Pretend You’ll Survive… Yorkshire Arts Association Film and Video (1970-1991)


Outline of research project

This research project is a study of film and video produced under the auspices of the Yorkshire Arts Association (YAA), broadly defined between 1970-1991. This period witnessed an unprecedented outbreak of independent film and video production in the region, and the thesis will discuss the factors involved in creating such a culture through the lens of a YAA case study. By combining archival scholarship, audio-visual collecting, and critical historical writing, this PhD will provide an innovative platform to stimulate future research in regional film history.
