Catherine Grant was to be a keynote speaker at Videographic Film Studies Now, a workshop organised by John Gibbs at the University of Reading in April 2017. As events transpired, the workshop clashed with the interview for what was to become her new post of Professor of Digital Media and Screen Studies at Birkbeck. She travelled to Reading in advance to record this In Conversation which was then screened in the cinema at the Minghella Studios as part of the workshop. It also means that we can now share her thoughts with a wider audience more effectively than would be possible with a more conventional keynote appearance.
