PhD in Communication Sciences – Film Studies | University of Leuven
Pascal Vandelanoitte studied Communication Sciences at K.U.Leuven, with a specialization in film studies. After obtaining his Master’s Degree, he wrote film reviews for printed media and radio and gave introductions at film screenings as well as lectures on film history in cultural centres.
Pascal lectures Documentary History at LUCA School of Arts (Brussels) and also works as an advisor within the Flemish regional government, with responsibilities for the Brussels arts scene.
He also wrote a PhD, supervised by Prof. Hesling at the University of Leuven. The focus lies on how the interpretation of historical arthouse movies is not only determined by references to history, but by filmic characteristics and intertextuality as well. The PhD was defended successfully on 29 February 2012. He lectures regularly at cultural institutes and the Royal Filmmuseum Cinematek.
He has published on films by directors as Pasolini, Visconti, Kubrick and Tarkovsky. His main interests are arthouse movies, experimental film and an eclectic variety of classical music, jazz, literature and new media.
