TRAUMA Movie Screenings

Trauma is a free film reading group based at the University of Ulster in Coleraine. We screen films every Thursday during term time, with each season lasting three weeks. These themed seasons generally deal with films which are extreme in filmic practice, theory or content, all constructed and delivered by people who attend regularly.

Each screening consists of a ten to fifteen minute introduction, followed by the film and then a group trip down to the Senior Common Room (SCR) bar for a few drinks and a discussion about the film. Screenings start at 7pm and are usually held in LT1 (South Building). Everyone is welcome and admission is FREE.
