New Partnership with Eden Flix

Tuesday 30th of July 2013 09:17:00 PM

Flix is proud to announce a new partnership with EDEN FLIX thanks to the upcoming Digital projection systems that will allow for greater expansion into documentary films.

EDEN FLIX is a recent development to the film scene at Loughborough University, introduced in the previous academic year by the Centre for Engineering and Design Education (CEDE) to provide free screenings of inspirational and thought provoking documentaries related to engineering and design disciplines. The initiative constitutes as part of the Engineering and Design Educators Network (EDEN) series of events.

The films that EDEN FLIX promote challenge our fundamental beliefs and ideas about the world we live in, taking us out of our comfort zones to expose controversies and current or imminent crises, suggesting new methodologies and inspiration for future developments. Themes covered last term included investigations into our relationship with our fuel and food sources, and how technology is playing an ever increasing role in our lives and its impacts on our species. Each screening intends to inform our students of relevant worldly issues that they may have to address to inspire them to push their research to the next level.     

With the help of Flix’s new Digital projection systems and a donation from EDEN FLIX towards our fundraising needs, we have a great opportunity to work together and expand our horizons for the benefit of all students based within Loughborough.

“CEDE are delighted to be collaborating with Flix to expand our EDEN FLIX initiative, allowing us to share our messages with a much wider audience. We look forward to seeing our documentary films through the state-of-the-art digital projection system in the fantastic facilities of the Cope Auditorium, which I’m certain, will add to the experience.” – Jonathan Attenborough, CEDE.
