We are delighted to announce, Nelly will be the keynote speaker at Woman WIth A Movie Camera Summit at the BFI, which is being held on the 20th June, 12:00 – 12:40!
A day of activism and conversation at BFI Southbank went beyond the usual discourse about diversity in the film industry, calling for radical strategies to bring about structural change. The theme for the day is REFRAMING the conversation about gender, and the screen industry.
Other special guests throughout the day will include director Deborah Haywood (Pin Cushion) and writers Kirstie Swain (Pure) and Emma Jane Unsworth, whose adaptation of her own novel Animals, starring Holliday Grainger and Alia Shawkat and directed by Sophie Hyde, is released in UK cinemas on Friday 2 August. Following the end of the summit, there will also be a screening of Gone Girl (David Fincher, 2014), adapted by Gillian Flynn from her best-selling novel and starring Rosamund Pike in a BAFTA and Oscar-nominated performance.
The British Film Institute is a film and charitable organisation which promotes and preserves filmmaking and television in the United Kingdom.
