This biennial festival of all that is British in cinema brings people together to celebrate British film and to discover new material.

  • Subjects: British Cinema
  • Audience: General public, filmmakers, industry professionals

Living British Cinema 2014 is a festival of events, screenings and special guests, at Queen Mary, University of London, in association with Mile End Films. From the 26th – 28th March 2014, people joined together to celebrate what they already loved about British film and to discover a whole lot more! Highlights included Gurinder Chadha in conversation and a twentieth anniversary screening of her debut feature Bhaji on the Beach at the Genesis cinema. 

The Living British Cinema Forum was established in 2010 by Dr Lucy Bolton and Dr Charles Drazin of the Film Studies department at QMUL. LBC is a collaborative forum that supports the promotion of British film. It encourages exchange between the many groups that care about British cinema’s well-being, including students, scholars, writers and filmmakers and industry professionals. It seeks to provide a continuous, active forum through events, screenings and study days, as well as online publication and our biennial festival.
