About this Podcast

With the Imagine Festival currently screening films that highlight the role of censorship in what and how we watch, we were delighted to invite Dr Sian Barber, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies at Queen’s University Belfast, to join Sara and Hugh in discussing the issue of film censorship and the impact of censorship on the modern film world.

We discussed a range of areas, including the recent controversy in film classification for The Batman and Foscadh, the role of local councils and the BBFC and what the future looks like in light of the proposed online safety bill.

We also have the return of Sara's Film Round Up, giving you the skinny on all the independent cinema coming up, in your area.

You can read some more about Sian's work here.
