BFI Future Film Festival - Monday

So Saturday and Sunday have been and gone to huge success and many may be feeling a bit of a Monday morning lull. Fear not film fans, it’s half term, and the Future Film Festival continues for one more day to kick start the week for any of you lucky enough to be on school holidays and alleviate the start-of-the-week blues for workers and students alike. Today BFI are exploring documentary, so whether you see yourself as David Attenborough, Werner Herzog, or Michael Moore, head down to BFI Southbank for all the latest tips for capturing real life through a lense. 

MONDAY 18TH OF FEBRUARY

THE FUTURE OF DOCUMENTARY AND ITS ROLE IN SOCIETY, 12PM

With the internet allowing us information at our fingertips, do we still need documentaries to teach us about the world beyond our front door? This discussion with FILMCLUB will explore why documentaries still matter to society. They will explain how decisions are made and tested in the production process, and how to maintain integrity in such a competative marketplace.

Nowadays, cameras on phones can have as many pixels as a digital camera for twice the price so no wonder the use of mobiles to film what’s going on around you is on the rise. Iyare Igiehon will show you how to get the best out of your smart phone as well as explaining what added extras are available to make your mobile doc even better.
