BFI Film Classics: A New Era (Nov 17th)
Bloomsbury proudly invites you to a celebration of the BFI Film Classics series, with Film Classics’ authors in conversation with Pam Hutchinson. See full details on Eventbrite: https://bit.ly/3jrUAe1
Hosted by journalist and film critic Pamela Hutchinson, and featuring contributions from the authors of the three new titles in the series, this event will celebrate the relaunch of the BFI Film Classics earlier this year, alongside a new wave of titles publishing this Autumn.
Stacey Abbott, author of Near Dark, Manishita Dass, author of The Cloud-Capped Star – Meghe Dhaka Tara and Rebecca Harrison, author of The Empire Strikes Back will give short readings from their books and debate the idea of a ‘film classic’ and the knotty question of the canon.
Symbolic of a moment in cinema history, innovation in style or form, or a blockbuster at the box office? What defines a classic film and who ultimately decides? Join us as we discuss this and more.
