Film and video are at the heart of much of what goes on at UAL, from BA courses in Film and Television and Interaction Design to MA courses in Directing and Documentary Film, our students and graduates continue to create pioneering and influential work with the moving image.

Drawing on UAL’s strength in this discipline, Central Saint Martins has developed Strangelove – an ambitious festival exploring and celebrating the diversity of moving image with 50 events taking place over five days.

The Strangelove festival offers a rich and eclectic mix of screenings, talks, workshops and pop-up events, designed to embrace the presence of moving image and finding and experiencing new and exciting work.

Mark Dunhill, Dean of Academic Programmes at Central Saint Martins, said: “The majority of us have a relationship with the moving image on a daily basis in one form or another. Strangelove recognises the importance of moving image production on culture and communication, delivering an exciting programme of events which are open to all.”


The festival has been devised and programmed in collaboration with artist Terry Smith (workinprogress) and curator David Gryn (Artprojx). It will celebrate the diversity of moving image practice and explore the relationship between art, fashion, communication design, drama, performance and popular culture featuring the work of students through to prominent and established international artists, designers, directors, screen writers and performers.
