Mirek Gosney

Hello there
British-Czech Writer / Filmmaker

My name is Mirek Gosney. I have always been passionate about Film, History, Gaming and where any of these subjects cross over!

 

My main reason for creating this site traces back to my school days. During this time, I was often frustrated by the whitewashed, straightjacket history presented in the classroom. This inspired my interest in giving a voice to forgotten and marginalized histories overlooked by popular historical narratives.

I am currently writing as the Villages Reporter for Newbury Weekly News. I also have a professional background working in Theatre Production and Advertising as a Production Assistant and teaching Filmmaking to children and young adults.

 

I am always open to receiving feedback, information and suggestions for future projects. Please visit the Contact page if you wish to get in touch. I'll look forward to hearing from you!

 

Education

 

I graduated with a 2:1 in BA Film and History from the University of Southampton. I received a First-Class Honours for my Dissertation evaluating the contributions of The Czechoslovak New Wave to Czech cinema during the 1960s.

Location

I was born in Reading, but I was made in Thatcham.
