The BFI Film Academy SCENE 2020 events are going virtual!

Every Thursday at 4pm we will interview a young filmmaker LIVE on our BFI Film Academy Instagram channel, giving them an opportunity to promote their films and you a chance to watch some amazing new shorts, ask questions and learn from your filmmaking peers.

BFI Film Academy SCENE events are for emerging film talent aged 16-25. Every Monday, we will be sharing a link to the film which will be discussed in that week's Q&A across the BFI Film Academy social channels. You will be able to send us your questions for the filmmaker in advance, or submit them live during the event.
