As part of this year’s FOMI celebrations, UCL partner, the British Film Institute (BFI) will be presenting Blue Jean (Georgia Oakley, 2022). The BAFTA nominated film was co-produced by the BFI Film Fund, and has been celebrated across direction and script, with celebrated lead performances from Rosie McEwan and Kerrie Hayes. The film has recently landed on BFI Player and is an exploration of gender and homophobia during the Thatcher era. The screening will be introduced by BFI Senior Manager, James Weddup, who will introduce the work of BFI Network and BFI Film Fund and discuss the BFI’s work to support emerging filmmakers and across talent development. There will be an opportunity for guests to ask questions and understand more about available funding opportunities available as well as the BFI’s broader aim to promote diversity and equality in the film and television industry.
