Featuring: Amy Hardy, Melissa Silverstein, Pinny Grylls, Gabriella Apicella.
Venue: BFI SOUTHBANK
Date: Sat 12th April, 2014
Sit back and hear from a hand-selected group of inspirational speakers discussing topics to concern and engage the modern film mind, including:
- NEUROCINEMATICS with producer-director Amy Hardie. How does the brain process watching a film, and how can that information be used for creative output?
- WHY NUMBERS MATTER with journalist Melissa Silverstein (Women and Hollywood). Everyone loves film awards, but how are the results affected by who’s voting and levels of unconscious bias?
- ONLY A WOMAN COULD HAVE MADE THAT with award-winning director Pinny Grylls. Are female documentary makers the adventurers of the film world, and what makes a female pioneer?
- BEYOND THE BECHDEL TEST with female character consultant Gabriella Apicella. How can all filmmakers work to look at female characters more creatively?
Small Talk is your Saturday brain experience, best enjoyed with a glass of something in your hand.
