TALKS

VA VA VOOM: THE FRENCH TV BOOM
Fri 08 Oct 17.0 The Library, Cine Lumiere
French TV is going through an incredibly exciting moment, with the unprecedented international success of shows like Lupin and Call My Agent!. A panel, including The Rope series creators Eric Forestier and Dominique Rocher, explore some of the cultural and industrial reasons behind the boom in French TV content, including the rise of the streaming platforms, the increased tolerance of international audiences for subtitled content and the breakdown of the traditional cultural hierarchy between film and TV. We identify what French shows work internationally and whether their popularity is reflected domestically, as well as explore the challenges and opportunities this content boom provides to writers and directors. We'll also unpack French cultural attitudes towards television as an art-form and what room there is, if any, for the notion of the 'auteur' in this collaborative medium.

PROTEST & REVOLUTION
Sat 09 Oct 12.30 The Blue Room, BFI Southbank
Mothers of the Revolution (in LFF 2021 Journey Strand) tells the story of a group of women who opposed the siting of cruise missiles in the UK and set up the Greenham women's peace camp, the biggest female-led protest since women's suffrage. Forty years on, young activists who are standing up to fight for the issues of their time - climate, race and inequality of all kinds - join us for a conversation with some of the women who took part in the peace camp to discuss their experience of Greenham Common, connecting the #MeToo generation with the women who paved their way.

SPOTLIGHT: FIONA LAMPTEY
Sat 09 Oct 14.30 The Blue Room, BFI Southbank
We are delighted to welcome Fiona Lamptey, the founder and creative producer of Fruit Tree Media, and the Director of UK Features for Netflix. She will discuss her career and her passion for nurturing new talent, and how she wants to redefine what a British film looks and feels like. After working for Film4 as a production manager on productions that include Attack The Block, The Selfish Giant and Four Lions, Fiona established Fruit Tree Media in 2013, with the aim of cultivating and championing unrepresented voices, and to use her industry experience to develop new talent. In her role as Director of UK Features at Netflix, Fiona oversees the content team managing the development and production of UK original films, including identifying books, theatre and other IP to develop into features. As well as producing the Film4 mini sci-fi series Foresight (screening as part of LFF For Free) Fiona also produced debbie tucker green's ear for eye (in LFF 2021 Debate strand).

BFI FILM CLASSICS: THE MAKINGS OF A CLASSIC
Sun 10 Oc 13.00 BFI Reuben Library, BFI Southbank
The BFI Film Classics book series introduces, interprets and celebrates landmarks of world cinema. Each volume offers an argument for the film's 'classic' status. But how do we decide what makes a film a classic? And who gets to decide which films are included in the canon? Join film publishers, critics and historians Rebecca Barden (BFI Publishing at Bloomsbury), Rebecca Harrison (Open University), Manishita Dass (Royal Holloway University of London) and Alex Dudok de Wit (Deputy Editor, Cartoon Brew) in a lively debate about film classics and how to rethink the canon. If we want to tell new stories about filmmaking and film cultures beyond the white western canon, where do we start?

THE FRIENDS OF JEREMY THOMAS
Sun 10 Oct 14.30 NFT 2, BFI Southbank
Jeremy Thomas has produced some of the world's finest independent films, from The Last Emperor, Sexy Beast and Crash to The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, Bad Timing and Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, to name but a few. In The Storms of Jeremy Thomas (available on BFI Player over the course of the Festival), director Mark Cousins takes a road trip with the Oscar-winning producer on his annual pilgrimage to the Cannes Film Festival. It's a journey both physical and philosophical as Cousins explores the authorial perspective that has emerged across Thomas' 60 feature films - as a provocateur and as seeker and celebrator of radical artists and thinkers. In this companion free talk we are delighted to welcome Mark to the BFI Southbank to lead a conversation with Jeremy and friends, to celebrate an extraordinary career unlike any other in British cinema.

DARK MATTER - INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING IN THE 21st CENTURY
Tue 12 Oct 11.00 NFT 3, BFI Southbank
Who and what decides whether a film gets funded? How do those who control the purse strings also determine a film's content and even its message? Michael Winterbottom is joined by Asif Kapadia and Mike Leigh to discuss the themes of his new book 'Dark Matter: Independent Filmmaking in the 21st Century'. The award-winning directors will discuss how studios that fund film production and control distribution networks also work against a sustainable independent film culture and limit innovation in style and content. They will share their vision of how the contemporary filmmaking landscape could be reformed, with fairer funding and payment practices, allowing for a more innovative and sustainable 21st-century industry.

LFF EXPANDED: AUGMENTED REALITY ART FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
Thurs 14 Oct 18.00 26 Leake Street
UP:RISE is an Augmented Reality public artwork from artist Baff Akoto that explores the pathology, history and underlying drivers of English civil unrest in the digital age. Marking 10 years since the 'UK Riots' of summer 2011 announced the arrival of 21st Century Britain, UP:RISE delves into the evolution of technology that has helped to shape the country and how society has since evolved along the same fault lines that resulted in the events of that summer. UP:RISE embeds archive of the riots into an Augmented Reality sculpture. The sound design includes testimonies from those arrested and convicted for offences that summer as they reflect on their country, their lives then and in the decade since. In this panel the LFF Expanded alumni (Virtual (Black) Reality, 2020) Baff Akoto discusses the possibilities and challenges of this emerging technology for public engagement with leading experts in the field.

CHAPLIN WALK
Sat 16 Oct 11.00 Kennington Underground Station
Sat 16 Oct 14.00 Kennington Underground Station
Catch Peter Middleton and James Spinney's innovative and illuminating documentary The Real Charlie Chaplin at our LFF screenings and then join us for a guided walk through the comedy genius' world.

Charlie Chaplin was born in Kennington, London in 1889 and spent the first 21 years of his life there. One of the poorest areas of the city, his early existence was tough. As a teenager he joined a performing group and his star on the London stage grew rapidly. During a tour of the US he was spotted by a scout for Sennett Studios, who signed him up and, well, the rest is history! Arguably the first truly global star, he featured in countless shorts, became a celebrated filmmaker and was defined by his Little Tramp on-screen persona.

The walk starts from Kennington Tube Station and will take in some of the houses he lived in, the workhouse he spent time in as a child and the even place where he developed his famous comedy walk.

FILM ACADEMY YOUNG PROGRAMMER EVENTS
The Young Programmer events at this year's LFF are curated and delivered by BFI Film Academy's Young Programmers and aimed at people aged 16-25 interested in learning about or working in screen industries. Both playful and political, these events touch on issues of identity and representation on-screen, explore successful collaborations across different creative forms, as well as offer practical tips on how to make short films on no budget and produce fan content of your own. Events will take place at BFI Southbank during Film Academy Days supported by Netflix on Sunday 10 October and Sunday 17 October.

AFRO-FUTURES
Sun 17 Oct 13:00 Blue Room, BFI Southbank

Afro-Futures embodies this spirit, bringing together four Black emerging artists to create a collaborative film.

A visual artist, sound artist, writer and editor come together to create a short Afrofuturist film, layered with their singular talents. Join us as we screen this short film and then host a panel discussion with its creators.

Panellists: Xana, Simisolaoluwa Akande, Nse Asuquo
Host: Ramatoulie Bobb, BFI Film Academy Young Programmer

FIVER FLICKS
Sun 10 Oct 14:00 Blue Room, BFI Southbank
From '90s kids playing with handycams to smartphone films becoming unexpected festival hits, no-budget filmmaking has created some serious precedents. But filmmaking is still rife with hidden costs and if you're a one-person-band, pulling together a production can be a challenge.

Fiver Flicks brings together three of the UK's most exciting young filmmakers and challenges them to make a short for just £5. We will dig into their processes, chat about smartphone shooting and glean a bunch of practical tips: from 'how do you mimic a dolly shot on an iPhone' to 'seriously, can you DIY a softbox with a bedsheet?' Whether you're looking to make the next low-budget knockout or just want some insights fresh from the field, Fiver Flicks will offer some serious filmmaking inspiration - trust fund not required.

Panellists: Luna Carmoon, Jess Chowdhury, Emmanuel Li
Host: Clodagh Chapman, BFI Film Academy Young Programmer
Commission filmmakers: Luna Carmoon, Jess Chowdhury and Emmanuel Li
BFI Film Academy Young Programmer Curators: Clodagh Chapman, Ramatoulie Bobb, Hazel George and Shadman Kabir

COMMUNITY CAMERA: FILMMAKING COLLECTIVES
Sun 17 Oct 11:00 Blue Room, BFI Southbank
It's never been more important to make sure that everyone can see themselves on screen and that they can tell their own story. Across the country, communities that haven't been given enough of a voice in the film industry are finding ways to make their own work and get it seen.

In this panel discussion we will be exploring how those who are marginalised can come together to tell their stories. Is working collectively going to give us a louder voice? How can filmmakers stay in touch with the community around them? What are some of the challenges of trying to make films with a social purpose? And is it ever going to be possible to represent everyone in your community with complete accuracy onscreen?

This event will also look at what it's like to make films as a collective, from finding members to staying on the same page. How can working collaboratively make our films stronger and more exciting, and how can we manage differences of opinion? Whether you work collectively or not, collaboration is a key skill on any film set and we'll explore the best ways to work with other creatives on a project.

The three collectives represented in this event are Amber Film and Photography Collective, Black Audio Film Collective and T A P E Collective. Amber is dedicated to capturing working-class voices from the North-East of England from their base in Newcastle. Black Audio Film Collective was founded in 1982 and was active until 1998, with their work pushing the boundaries of documentary film in experimental directions to capture the state of race relations in Britain. T A P E was founded in 2015 and has highlighted and supported work by filmmakers from under-served backgrounds since.

Panellists: Bryan Dixon (Co-Director, Amber Film and Photography Collective), Isra Al Kassi (Co-Founder, T A P E Collective), Trevor Mathison (Founding Member, Black Audio Film Collective)
Host: Siavash Minoukadeh, BFI Film Academy Young Programmer
BFI Film Academy Young Programmer Curators: Siavash Minoukadeh, Erick Jackaman and Nick Willis

FOR THE FANS: MEMES, ZINES, EDITS AND FANFIC
Sun 10 Oct 11:00 Blue Room, BFI Southbank
Who hasn't watched a fancam before? Or read a fanfic story that finally sees those two characters end up together? Fan content contains some of the most popular ways of engaging with films and TV shows, but all too often it can seem like a 'guilty pleasure'. Should it be? Or should we, and the film industry, embrace fan content and support the voices behind it?

For the Fans is a panel discussion that celebrates this content and its creators. We'll be screening new works, and getting into what fan content is and why it should be taken seriously. We'll also give you the chance to produce your own work of fan content with a fanzine-making workshop, so you can finally put those photos of your favourite characters to good use.

The event takes the format of a one hour drop-in fanzine-making workshop (which begins at 11am), led by experienced workshop facilitator Ioana Simion of Artizine UK. It will be followed by a screening of the three new works made by the creators and a panel discussion of all things fan content (which begins at 12pm).

Panellists: Stella Parker, Hugo Hutchins, Niall Chaudhuri-Julyan, Megan Mitchell
Host: Siavash Minoukadeh, BFI Film Academy Young Programmer
Commissions: Stella Parker, Hugo Hutchins and Niall Chaudhuri-Julyan
BFI Film Academy Young Programmer Curators: Siavash Minoukadeh, Erick Jackaman and Bethany Privitera

Events will take place at BFI Southbank and online.

Raw talent: Working with non-professional actors
Sun 10 Oct 17:00-18:15 Library, BFI Southbank
Director Fred Bailiff worked with a cast of non-professional actors for La Mif, his bold exploration of the lives of teenagers in a residential care home in Geneva. Screening as part of the Dare strand at LFF, La Mif sparks with energy and authenticity, thanks to its cast of non-professional teenage actors, all of whom used their own experiences to inform the characters they played.

Join us for a panel discussion with Fred, La Mif DOP Joseph Areddy and cast members Charlie Areddy and Joyce Esther Ndayisenga to discuss the process of working with a non-professional cast of actors. Fred, a self-taught filmmaker, alongside his DOP Joseph, will provide insight into the processes of casting, directing, and providing notes to actors without previous on-set experience. Charlie and Joyce will talk about what it was like acting in their first on-screen roles, how they developed their own characters and improvised dialogue, and what is important for directors to know when working with new and inexperienced actors. Hear tips for working with different kinds of actors, and discover the ways that non-traditional filmmaking techniques can work for your projects.

Following our discussion with Fred, Joseph, Charlie and Joyce, catch a screening of La Mif at BFI Southbank (8.50pm, NFT3).

Vengeance Is Mine, All Others Pay Cash
Sat, 16 Oct 21:15 Curzon Soho Cinema, Screen 3 Sun 17 Oct, 20:30, Prince Charles Cinema
Dir Edwin. Prod Meiske Taurisia, Muhammad Zaidy. Scr Edwin, Eka Kurniawan. With Marthino Lio, Ladya Cheryl.
Indonesia-Singapore-Germany 2021. 114min. Sales The Match Factory. Cert. 18
Indonesian director Edwin's dizzying film adaptation of Eka Kurniawan's acclaimed novel, about an impotent aspiring assassin, is a bracingly unusual genre hybrid.
Combining elements of retro East Asian fight cinema, raunchy sex comedies, ghost stories and all out romance movies, this utterly distinctive, weirdly moving film focuses on Ajo (Marthino Lio) a moody hitman intent on proving his worth by assassinating a local hood. But when he meets troubled bodyguard Iteung (Cheryl), a softer side to this young man emerges - an initially knockabout connection morphing into something more romantically physical. The only snag is that Ajo is impotent, just one of many obstacles the new couple must face as they hurtle into an uncertain, unpredictable and violent future. Constantly evolving narratively and tonally, prolific director Edwin's beautifully shot and performed film fires along at breakneck pace, unfolding its complex, thematically rich story with elegance, energy and sincere emotion. A truly unique film. Paul Ridd

This film contains distressing scenes.

£16.00 Standard Price / £10.00 for Students

Dir George Clooney. Prod Grant Heslov, George Clooney, Ted Hope. Scr William Monahan. With Ben Affleck, Tye Sheridan, Lily Rabe. USA 2021. 105min. UK Distribution Amazon Studios. Ben Affleck shines in George Clooney's eighth feature film as director, a sensitive coming-of-age drama about the power of unlikely role models.
JR is a boy without a name and a father. At least, that's the story according to many of the adults outside of his family. But when his mother moves back into her childhood home, JR's charismatic bar-owning Uncle Charlie (Affleck) is determined the boy doesn't see himself that way. Based on the memoirs of writer JR Moehringer and elegantly adapted for the screen William Monahan (The Departed), Tender Bar is a poignant reflection on the ways in which the right influence, at just the right time, can have a profound impact. Fuelled by the sounds of Jackson Browne, Golden Earring and Steely Dan, and with period-perfect design from an exceptional production team, Clooney's impressive drama also features Tye Sheridan as an older JR, reflecting back on his childhood, while newcomer Daniel Ranieri is a revelation as the budding young writer. Lily Rabe and Christopher Lloyd round out the terrific lead cast. Tricia Tuttle

SCREEN TALKS

SCREEN TALK: ANDERS DANIELSEN LIE
Saturday 09 October 2021, 15.15, NFT 3
We're delighted to welcome actor Anders Danielsen Lie to the BFI London Film Festival for a Screen Talk, where he will discuss his two new films in the festival, Mia Hansen-Løve's Bergman Island and The Worst Person in the World, the final part of Joachim Trier's Oslo trilogy.

Danielsen Lie has regularly featured in the festival. His global career was launched with Trier's Reprise, which screened in competition in 2006, and was followed by 2011's Cannes Un Certain Regard-nominated Oslo, August 31st. Alongside his work with Trier, Danielsen Lie has also starred in English-language films by acclaimed European directors Olivier Assayas (Personal Shopper) and Paul Greengrass (22 July, playing real-life far-right domestic terrorist Anders Behring Breivik).

In addition to his extensive acting career, Danielsen Lie's talents are wide and varied. In 2011, he wrote, performed and produced the album 'This is Autism', inspired by recordings from his childhood. And when not performing he works as a doctor, with his own medical practice.

SCREEN TALK: JANE CAMPION

We are delighted to welcome Academy Award-winner Jane Campion back to the BFI London Film Festival, after a twelve year absence from feature filmmaking, to discuss her new drama, the dark and captivating The Power of the Dog.

Campion began her career as a short filmmaker, before making her feature debut with Sweetie (1989), which screened in Competition at Cannes. Her second film, An Angel at My Table (1990) received awards at both the Venice and Toronto film festivals. In 1993, she became the first female filmmaker to win the Palme d'Or and the second woman to be nominated for Best Director for The Piano. The film also won Oscars for Best Screenplay, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. A defining work in the history of women's filmmaking, The Piano was also voted the best film directed by a woman in a 2019 BBC Culture poll. Campion has directed a variety of film work across genres, including the cult erotic thriller In the Cut (2003), and the John Keats biopic Bright Star (2009). In 2013, she created, wrote and directed the critically acclaimed TV series Top of the Lake, starring Elizabeth Moss and Holly Hunter. A second series followed in 2017.

SCREEN TALK: RYUSUKE HAMAGUCHI
Tuesday 12 October 2021, 18.00, BFI YouTube and Facebook
Ryusuke Hamaguchi, director of not one but two films in this year's festival - Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy and Drive My Car - joins us to discuss his Silver Bear and Cannes Best Screenplay-winning films.

Whilst studying at Tokyo University of the Arts (where his student films included a remake of Tarkovsky's Solaris), Hamaguchi's graduation film, Passion was screened in competition at Tokyo Filmex. He followed this up with documentary work, including a three-part documentary about tsunami survivors directed alongside Sakai Ko.

In 2015 Hamaguchi released the 5 hour long film Happy Hour about a group of friends in their 30s, which screened at numerous film festivals (including the BFI London Film Festival) and was included on 'top films of the decade' lists from publications including the AV Club and Indiewire.

In the last few years, two of Hamaguchi's films have been selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at Cannes - firstly his 2018 film Asako I & II, followed by this year's Drive My Car which won Best Screenplay. Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy also debuted this year at Berlin Film Festival, where it was awarded the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize.

This is a free online event that will premiere on the BFI YouTube channel and Facebook.

In 2011, his riveting and suspenseful family drama A Separation attracted international acclaim, winning him the Golden Bear at Berlin and both an Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film. He repeated his Oscar success in 2016 with The Salesman.

In addition to his Iranian dramas, Farhadi travelled to France to make The Past (2013), starring Bérénice Bejo and Tahar Rahim. And in 2018 he cast Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem in the Spanish-set Everybody Knows.
