BFI Reuben Library events

The BFI Reuben Library hosts a range of events throughout the year.

We love reading about film and television in the library, and we also love talking and hearing about it too. Our year round events programme features a range of speakers, talks, and panel discussions, covering all manner of topics from Artists’ Moving Image to Women Screenwriters. With the opportunity to share your thoughts and questions at each event, why not expand your filmic horizons and drop by the BFI Reuben Library sometime.

Participants have included Stacey Abbott, Geoff Andrew, Miriam Bale, Charles Barr, Caroline Bainbridge, Lucy Bolton, Stephen Bourne, Peter Bradshaw, Mary Burke, Erica Carter, Ashley Clark, Benjamin Cook, Maria Palacios Cruz, Nina Danino, Sangeeta Datta, Sam Dunn, Richard Dyer, Gareth Evans, Lucy Fleming, Luke Fowler, William Fowler, Peter Gidal, Jane Giles, Gaylene Gould, Catherine Grant, Erika and Ulrich Gregor, Malcolm Le Grice, Hannah Hamid, Tanya Horeck, Mary Harrod, Tina Kendall, Nasreen Munni Kabir, Patrick Keiller, Nikolaj Lubecker, Royce Mahawatte, Laura Marcus, Sophie Mayer, Laura Mulvey, Sarah Neely, Chris Pallant, Grayson Perry, Alastair Phillips, Clive Phillpot, Anat Pick, Michele Pierson, Laura Rascaroli, Lucy Reynolds, Ben Roberts, David John Rhodes, Jonathan Romney, Jana Sante, Meenakshi Shedde, Sarah Street, Richard I Suchenski, Ginette Vincendeau, Holly Warburton, Kieron Webb, Mark Webber, Emma Widdis, Emma Wilson, Melanie Williams, Leila Wimmer, Stephen Woolley, and Sarah Wright.
