Celluloid Psychology was devised by Dr Alastair Smith, Associate Professor in Psychology as an antidote to the usual depictions of psychology on our screens.   

As part of November’s Celluloid Psychology season, and following the programmed podcast with academics from University of Plymouth which will be released on 2 November, we invite you to participate in a live Q and A on our Facebook page with our film programmer, Anna Navas; discuss the suggested films of the season, insights from the podcast and your thoughts on cinema which explores the mind and brain.
