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.
Come to the first screening on Tuesday 19th January and join the conversation!

The film's focus is Noah, picking up with him logging onto his computer, chatting with friends on Facebook and a Skype back-and-forth with his girlfriend Amy about their long distance relationship, which is when things begin to take a turn for the worse.
Noah tends to over-think, which most of us do on social media. He logs into his girlfriends account, after the same person keeps posting on her photos and finds a conversation between them.

The Cabinet of Dr Caliagri (72 mins)
Director Robert Wiene
Starring Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, Friedrich Feher
USA 1920 72 mins
This is an German film from the 1920s. The script was inspired by various experiences from the lives of Janowitz and Mayer, both pacifists who were left distrustful of authority after their experiences with the military during World War I. It was made in response to what was going on at that particular time, and social media is a great way of sharing information on current events.
