Stephen Phillips - Programme Support Officer, Film and Cinema
I moved to Cardiff from Cwmbran in 2010 to study English Literature and Cultural Criticism at Cardiff University, which was a brilliant way to study a bunch of different art-forms. During my time here, I've worked with Cardiff Design Festival, Swn Festival, Literature Wales and Iris Prize Festival. I started working at Chapter on the caffi-bar before moving upstairs to help out in the cinema department - it's a great place to broaden your horizons and skills and meet very lovely people. I went away for a spell in 2015 working with Film London Artists Moving Image Network on that year's incarnation of the Jarman Award before coming back home to assist with the busy cinema programme.
I enjoy dog walking, gardening, eating and sleeping. I've been known to attempt knitting, origami, embroidery and other such pursuits before failing miserably.
Tell us a secret
In 2012 I won a baking competition that took place in a disco room.
Tell us a joke
Roses are red
Violets are blue
This format is tired
As I am, of you
