Thesis- Discovering why does contemporary UK film policy take the shape that it does? And what shape does contemporary film policy take?
After achieving the MA Degree in Digital Film and Television Production at University of York, I worked in TV industry in China before continuing my PhD study in York. My current research interests include cross-cultural film co-productions, as well as diversity and inclusion policy in the UK film industries.
To explore how did UK film policy develop over time and how the development has shaped the contemporary UK film policy, my research focuses on key themes and historical moments to examine the development of British film legislation from both socio-cultural and economic perspectives, in the context of British film policy and the British film industry.
