This year’s 66th BFI London Film Festival is taking place between 5th-16th October in London as well as in select cinemas around the country. What’s even better is that you can take part in the festival without spending a single penny and without even leaving your home. The LFF For Free programme includes a whole host of wonderful events including Instant Gra-TV-Cation
As part of LFF For Free, is Instant Gra-TV-Cation, a panel discussion featuring industry professionals looking at the rise of streaming, what sets TV apart from film and how TV has changed over the past 10 years.
Taking the form of a panel discussion, Instant Gra-TV-Cation will dive into the world of streaming. The panel will look at viewing habits and our growing obsession with TV to discuss why our watchlists might be too full. And given the rise in actors crossing over from the big screen to the small screen, just where do we draw the line between film and TV? This online showcase will feature a panel discussion which will launch on the BFI YouTube channel on October 14th.
The panel will be made up of Lisa Kerrigan, Senior Curator of Television at the BFI National Archive, Oliver Lyttelton, screenwriter and creator of Cheaters (2022) and Wedding Season (2022), and Hanna Flint, film & TV critic and author of Strong Female Character. The event will be hosted by LFF’s Series & Episodic Programmer, Rowan Woods.
Instant Gra-TV-Cation promises to be an excellent event and a great way to enjoy the wonders of London Film Festival not only from your own home, but also for free. You can find out more about the event here.
