Filmosophy is a long-running season at Filmhouse of original and thought-provoking films and discussions. Each film is presented by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening discussion. Screenings are introduced and post-screening discussions hosted by James Mooney, Short Courses lecturer and course organiser at The University of Edinburgh. No previous knowledge of philosophy is required.
