    Reframing Film Heritage

    Watershed
“You can’t change the material but you can change who’s looking”–  Writer/Curator Karen Alexander
Some of the most distinctive voices in curation and archiving open up a conversation on the potential of reclaiming and reframing archives. Expect provocations from guests Karen Alexander (writer/curator) and Ehsan Khoshbakht (Il Cinema writer, filmmaker whose Filmfarsi premieres at the festival) about how archives might impact on people’s experience and perspective; their own sense of self, place and memory as well as inspire debate, action and creative practice.
Be inspired by case studies from organisations from across the UK that have found unique ways to to engage communities in local archives, from takeovers to place specific film experiences.  Enjoy the opportunity to meet and chat with other cinema and archive practitioners and the wider industry at the networking lunch and drinks sponsored by STUDIOCANAL, Park Circus and MUBI.
Co-presented with BFI Film Audience Network (FAN) partners including Film Hub North, leading on major FAN wide film screen heritage activity with support from National Lottery, this is part of a series of initiatives aimed at inspiring and challenging the exhibition and archive sector to reframe film heritage in the context of BFI2022 priorities and beyond.
This event is free and is open to BFI Film Audience Network (FAN) Members only. To find out how to join BFI FAN, contact your regional hub: https://www.bfi.org.uk/FAN
