The Cinema Graph was set up by a film student, for film students. By student, we don’t mean “sitting in a lecture hall, learning about the CinemaScope” (though that’s cool too!), we mean people who are dedicated to furthering their passion and their love for film, and through that, learning more about the medium as an art form and communicative tool.

Fionn is a second year Undergraduate Film Studies and English Literature student at Trinity College Dublin. Although an avid fan of film throughout his life, on entering university, Fionn had only ever watched one film made before 1970, Sydney Lumet’s 1957 classic, 12 Angry Men. However, it wasn’t long before films like Jean Vigo’s L’Atalante (1934) and Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane (1941) opened his mind to the decades of marvellous cinema he had not yet experienced. Fionn has written multiple reviews for student-run culture magazine TN2, also runs a meme page on Instagram, aptly named @BillyButWilder.
