Lorraine Lim Prize (academic year 2018/19)

It is with great pleasure to announce Fernando ESPINACH  as this years winner of the Lorraine Lim Prize for his dissertation Shedding Skins: Curating Central American women filmmakers’ minor cinema after 2010 that he wrote in the summer 2019 for the MA in Film Curating. Fernando’s work throws light on a cinema which is little known and precarious but full of intellectual ambition in advocating for and intervening into culture.

The runner-up prize goes to Carolyn Ehman for her dissertation Gatekeeping at the Intersection of Time & Care: Exploring the Role of Hire Managers in Charitable Performing Arts Organisations in which she draws attention to an important but often ‘hidden’ profession. This dissertation was submitted for the MA in Arts Policy and Management.
