Christian Diaz Duran
Christian Díaz Durán is a graduate from the Film Studies program at the University of British Columbia. As a producer of the UFSA Podcast, his main interest is to foster a conversation between the undergraduate students in the Film Studies program, and the filmmakers, festival programmers, and scholars that share their knowledge in front of the mic. Among the topics he likes to discuss are transgressive and world cinema,interests that also inform his work as a filmmaker and editor.
The UFSA Podcast, a bi-monthly recorded publication by the University of British Columbia’s Undergraduate Film Studies Association (UFSA), is a platform for interdisciplinary dialogue around the art of cinema, the theoretical concepts that pertain to film, and the production process of film-making. Overall, the podcast seeks to foster a community around film at UBC and in Vancouver, through in depth interview series, roundtables, and coverage of live events with some of the scholars presently lecturing at the university, as well as local film programmers and emerging filmmakers.
