Death Becomes Her: Drag Show Bitch-along
Fri 21 Jun 18:20 NFT1 p16
This event will be hosted by Baby Lame, one of London’s most exciting cabaret stars, and an award-winning Drag Queen renowned for their MC talents and razor sharp comic delivery.
BITCH-ALONG RULES! Make Noise! Yes, you might be visiting the BFI... but this is a Bitch-along, friends! Boo Bruce Willis and cheer, holler and hoot megastars Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn as they read each other to filth with their fantastically funny put downs.
Have Fun!Although Death Becomes Her did actually win an Oscar (yes, Google it), it isn't exactly the most serious piece of cinema. So, come with an open mind and get ready to embrace how CAMP this movie truly is!
Don't be an actual bitch!Your host Baby Lame actively encourages sassy responses throughout the screening - but let's be nice and respectful to each other. Leave your problems at the door - we have a strict no tutting policy!

Woman With a Movie Camera Summit 2019
Sat 22 Jun 12:00 - 18:00 BFI Southbank - Across the Venue
A day of talks and events around gender equality in the screen industries.
This June, we take the chance, now that time has passed since the #MeToo movement, to reframe the conversation around opportunities, criticism, conservation and resistance for women in the screen industries. In the second edition of the Woman With a Movie Camera Summit - our centrepiece event dedicated to women in film - we welcome filmmakers, academics, scholars, activists, writers, critics, artists, programmers and audiences to explore this notion with us and, hopefully, propel the conversation further. Expect interviews with filmmakers and practitioners, live panel discussions, rousing talks and playful events taking over every screen, room, nook and cranny of the BFI Southbank. Join us - and together, let's reframe the conversation around gender equality in the screen industries.
Anna Bogutskaya Programmer | Woman With a Movie Camera
This is a single ticket that covers all events for the day. You can use your ticket to drop in and out of sessions.
Tickets on sale now - £20, concs £16 (Members pay £2 less). £10 for 25s and under, bookable in advance.

We are pleased to announce the programme for the day (with a couple more events to be announced) - view full details here

NFT1: Keynote Speaker: Dr Nelly Ben Hayoun
12:00 - 12:40 NFT1
Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun is a creative tour-de-force impossible to place in one single category. Dubbed the 'Willy Wonka of Design', she is also an award-winning director that occupies a unique space between film, politics, design and science. Her previous film, Disaster Playground, screened at festivals like SXSW, Sheffield Doc/Fest and BFI London Film Festival and she's has just completed her latest film project, I Am (Not) a Monster, on the origins, power structures and mechanics of knowledge with contributors such as Noam Chomsky and Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot. A pioneer in the design of experiences and an all-out explosive thinker, we're thrilled to have her set the tone for the day, inspire us to think wider and in more pluralistic terms about filmmaking practices. Dr. Ben Hayoun will share methodologies, long term views of technological developments, but first and foremost, the need and urgencies to think in action and rethink the systems of distribution and filmmaking.

We are delighted to present a preview of this new 4K presentation of The Shining, which is receiving its premiere in Cannes, as the perfect finale to our two-month Kubrick project:-
Preview: The Shining (extended version)
Mon 24 Jun 20:25 NFT1
UK-USA 1980. Dir Stanley Kubrick. With Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd. 144min. Digital 4K. 15
Jack Nicholson’s most memorable role, as a writer on the edge of insanity, is a must-see on the big screen. Nicholson revels in his terrifying performance as Jack Torrance, the would-be writer and winter caretaker of the vast Overlook Hotel who becomes the minotaur trapped in Kubrick’s supernatural maze, as he descends into madness. Quite possibly the most speculated-upon film ever made, Kubrick made the quintessential psychological horror film on his first attempt. Gloriously disturbing, unforgettable, must-see cinema.
Courtesy of Warner Bros. The 4K remastering was done using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative. The mastering was done at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging, and the colour grading was done by Janet Wilson, with supervision from Stanley Kubrick’s former personal assistant Leon Vitali.

Support the Girls
Fri 28 Jun 20:50 Studio; Sat 29 Jun 18:40 Studio; Sun 30 Jun 16:15 & 20:30 Studio; Mon 1 Jul 18:30 Studio; Tue 2 Jul 20:45 Studio; Wed 3 Jul 18:30 Studio; Thu 4 Jul 21:10 Studio.
USA 2018. Dir-Scr Andrew Bujalski. with Regina Hall, Haley Lu Richardson, Shayna McHayle. 90min. Digital. 15. A Bulldog Film Distribution release.
A ‘sports bar with curves’, with an oddly family-friendly emphasis, the ‘breastaurant’ is a peculiar American phenomenon. In the expert hands of LFF alumni Bujalski (Funny Ha Ha, Computer Chess), one of the US indie scene’s most versatile filmmakers, it’s also a perfect venue through which to reveal the modern workplace: ruthless corporate exploitation, defiant workers’ solidarity, and messy gender and racial politics. But that’s never at the expense of insightful, even-handed characterisation and believably funny, touching situations. It’s nigh on impossible not to find these take-charge women the best company around, from Haley Lu Richardson and Dylan Gelula’s star employees to the ever-excellent Regina Hall’s compassionate, crisis-managing boss. ‘No drama,’ demands James Le Gros’ uptight, sexist owner. Naturally, Bujalski - and his girls - disrespectfully disagree.
Leigh Singer, London Film Festival 2018.

LIFF Closing Night Gala: UK Premiere: Photograph + Q&A with director Ritesh Batra
Sat 29 Jun 17:15 NFT1 p45
India/Germany/USA 2019. Dir Ritesh Batra. With Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sanya Malhotra, Gitanjali Kulkarni, Farrukh Jaffar. 109min. Digital. Hindi, Gujarati, English with EST. 15.
Cannes hit The Lunchbox took the world by storm with box office success in all territories. Its director Ritesh Batra returns to the big screen with this nuanced romance between unlikely lovers. Acting legend Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays Rafi, a humble street photographer outside the Gateway of India, Mumbai. He photographs an attractive young wealthy woman Miloni, who disappears without paying. Keeping her photo, he tries to fob off his marriage-peddling granny by sending her the photo to show his success, but impressed, she is soon heading to Mumbai to meet the marriage prospect. Rafi manages to track down Miloni and convince her to pretend to be his fiancée, and, partly intrigued by rough diamond Rafi’s request and partly because she’s looking for something extraordinary, she agrees.
