This is the website of academic and filmmaker James Newton.

I am Senior Lecturer in Digital Media at Canterbury Christ Church University. Formerly I was an Associate Lecturer in Film Studies at the University of Kent, and taught film and video production at East Surrey College.

I am the module convener of Introduction to Digital Media, Digital Aesthetics, Mobile Filmmaking, and Individual Study.

My research interests include anarchism, political cinema, horror and the exploitation film, the avant garde, and documentary. My film and video practice incorporates both narrative and experimental work, and has been screened in galleries and at festivals.
