THE BFI REUBEN LIBRARY THE BFI REUBEN LIBRARY book online at bfi.org.uk The Long-form Artists’ Film TRT 80min For our third talk supported by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, we ask ‘what is the long-form artists’ film’? What are the considerations for its production and distribution? Our panel of experts consider its history in the UK, from works like Borderline (1930) via work by Margaret Tait and Derek Jarman to recent work from Ben Rivers, Margaret Salmon and John Akomfrah. MON 30 OCT 18:30 BFI REUBEN LIBRARY We also discuss the role of institutions such as the Arts Council of England, and the BFI. Chaired by Benjamin Cook (Director, LUX), our panel is Mary Burke (BFI Film Fund), Michelle Pierson (King’s College London) and William Fowler (BFI Archive Curator). Tickets £6.50 See p63 for our Experimenta strand Supported by Collections Focus: Thriller ‘This essentially twentieth-century form shows no sign of releasing its grip upon our ambivalent desires both to escape from and to remain within the uneasy security of our increasingly downsized world.’ Thrillers (Martin Rubin, 1999) We mine our rich collections in an attempt to define this most slippery of genres. Browse materials, articles and books on film noir to espionage, crime drama to Cold War paranoia and beyond, and delve deeper into the stories that put us on the edge of our seats...
