A practice based session designed to inspire and challenge cinema and archive practitioners to think about reframing film heritage in more inclusive ways that opens up meaningful dialogue.
If we shift our perspective, to no longer assume that Hollywood and the West is at the centre of film history, a different picture begins to emerge both on and off screen.
Expect a series of short provocations from guest speakers including Jemma Desai (Founder of I am Dora), The Final Girls, Sally Griffith (Anim18), Dr Shawn Sobers (Associate Professor of Lens-based Media at UWE) and writer/curator Karen Alexander. This is a space for conversations about individual challenges and best practice in this area, navigating how we might collectively go about reframing film heritage in the context of BFI2022.
This is a BFI Film Audience Network event co-presented with Film Hubs North and South West and support from the National Lottery and STUDIOCANAL. It is free to members of the BFI Film Audience Network. If you are not a member of the BFI Film Audience Network but are interested in finding out about membership or getting involved, you can contact your regional Film Hub.
