The Department of Film and Television Studies notes with great sadness that the co-founder of the Department of Film and Television Studies at the University of Warwick, Professor V.F.Perkins, has passed away.

Victor made an immeasurable contribution to the development of Film Studies in the UK and the English speaking world and will be remembered by generations of students, scholars and colleagues for his compassionate and insightful wisdom, critical insight, and generous spirit of intellectual enquiry.

For all of us who fell under the spell of his work, he helped us to see and think more clearly.
