From Attenborough to Zefirelli. From Deuce Bigalow to Kathryn Bigelow. From film noir to video nasties — we use film and popular culture to have the big conversations.
We podcast. We write books. We run live events. We send out a monthly newsletter. And there’s nothing we like better than a good conversation about film and popular culture.
Comprised of three film theorists and a music producer, with a retinue of collaborators from all walks of life, CinePunked believes that a deeper understanding of film, culture and the media is essential for navigating twenty-first century life. And we firmly believe that this shouldn’t be limited to academics.
CinePunked is the place where film fandom meets film theory. It’s a space for anyone who’s interested in understanding film and popular culture to find out more about the media that move them, to discuss and debate, and to have fun with your passion for popular culture.
We love film. We know film. We talk film. And we’d love to have you join in the discussion.
