This is the website of academic and filmmaker James Newton.

I am a film and media academic and lecturer at the University of Kent. Previously, I was Senior Lecturer in Digital Media at Canterbury Christ Church University, and taught film and video production at East Surrey College.

My research interests include the relationship between form and content, anarchism in popular culture, 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.

Author of The Anarchist Cinema (Intellect, 2019).
