BFI Media Conference 2016 plenary speech

BFI Media Conference 2016 plenary speech

A unique professional development opportunity for teachers of film and media to meet, learn and be inspired. The conference brings together speakers from the film, TV, online and games industries with leading teachers and researchers in stranded optional sessions, as well as offering plenaries, special events and film screenings. Highlights of the 2016 conference included industry speakers Billy Corbyn (Google’s Head of Creative & Content Strategy for Entertainment), Larushka Ivan-Zadeh (Film Editor, Metro) and Luti Fagbenle (music video producer for Rhianna, Drake and more). Teaching sessions included resourcing the new A Level specifications, project-based media learning, long form TV drama, and identity in social media.

“The whole conference was superb: every session was really stimulating and thought-provoking, and it was a fantastic opportunity to talk to other media teachers.”
Teacher delegate 2016, Redbridge
