Filmosophy is a long-running season at Filmhouse of original and thought-provoking films and discussions. Each film is presented by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening discussion. Screenings are introduced and post-screening discussions hosted by James Mooney, Short Courses lecturer and course organiser at The University of Edinburgh. No previous knowledge of philosophy is required.

For more information on screenings and events or to continue the discussion, you can 'like' Filmosophy on their Facebook page or follow @film_philosophy on Twitter.
