10 February / 7.30pm / The Box / FREE, booking required
Our current exhibition Follow is all about how we live on social media and what happens to us when we market ourselves online. What does it mean to be a citizen of the wider online community?
We’ve been collaborating with BFI Hub programme Film Audience Network to bring you a series of screenings that explore these themes in more depth. The programme has been developed by a team of young people who have researched and critiqued a range of films for you to engage with. Showcasing everything from blockbusters to documentaries to short films made locally, this is a diverse, exciting programme designed for true film fans of all ages.
