This workshop will be delivered in collaboration with Film Hub North who have been tasked with developing a 4 year plan for the BFI around youth engagement and screen heritage. Participants will learn how to access our archives and work with archive materials for film making as well as programming. Participants of this workshop will also be helping to shape and inform the BFI’s youth engagement strategy for the coming years.
Session hosted by Andy Robson, Screen Heritage Producer with Film Hub North. He is leading the four-year cross Film Audience Network Screen Heritage Programme. As a graduate of the University of East Anglia’s MA in Film Archiving, Andy has worked in the archive sector across a number of production and exhibition roles. In this time, he co-founded the Marc Karlin Archive leading to a publication on the radical independent filmmaker’s work and for the last three years he undertook a PhD with the University of Sunderland in collaboration with the Amber Film and Photography Collective investigating Amber’s role in the Workshop Declaration and its innovative approaches to exhibition and distribution with the local North East community.
