Future Greats - BFI FF 2017

It's the 10th Future Film Festival, BFI's celebration of young filmmakers, and we are excited to be involved.

Alongside work and sessions from breakout filmmakers like Charlie Lyne, Duncan Cowles and Grace Ladoja, we're hosting a talk with some new talents about establishing yourself as a filmmaker, and have helped pick the shorts in the screening programmes.

Documentary Filmmaking in the Year of NonFact

Documentary Filmmaking in the Year of NonFact

"In 2016 reality collapsed. Facts are dead." Documentary filmmaker and critic, Robert Greene, like many other documentarians of late, considers the problems, promises and possibilities of filmmaking in a post-truth world. Seeing a world in disarray, Greene comments on the ubiquity of the meta-documentary, of a wider understanding of documentary filmmaking as "a thousand lies in the service of the truth", and even the possible complicity of filmmakers in the destruction of truth. "The era of post-truth documentary is manifest." SP's community weighs in.
