British Council USA Summer Camp
We were very pleased to welcome along the British Council Summer camp this month, as a group of students from the US visited Birmingham and stopped off at The Electric along the way.
After being given a talk about the history of the cinema, plus the differences between 35mm and digital, the students split into two groups to watch separate films - Bend It Like Beckham and The Bourne Legacy. After that, they continued their Birmingham tour with a trip to Bournville and Aston Villa FC.
It was actually the final leg of the group's UK tour, which also included places like Stratford, Glasgow and Snowdonia, and we were very happy to be involved in this cultural exchange. Click here for a link to their own blog post about the event.
