Timon Singh
Campaigns Manager

Timon Singh is from Bristol and has a background in copywriting and digital marketing. He has spent the past 6 years hosting several film nights in Bristol including the Bristol Bad Film Club which screens a mixture of curios and films that are “so bad, they’re great”. All profits from the events go to a different charity each month and as of 2018, the BBFC has raised over £30,000 for local causes, as well as hosting a number of UK premieres and even the cult stars like Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero.
Ti has also just published his first book, Born To Be Bad: Talking to the greatest villains in action cinema (perfect as a gift for every member of the family), and is currently a writer/producer on the forthcoming documentary film In Search of the Last Action Heroes.
Talk to Ti about support for BFI FAN new releases, Booking Now, BFI FAN Communications and branding as well as marketing good and bad films.
