BFI Media Conference — TV Plenary 2018

Thu 28-Fri 29 June 2018

BFI Southbank

A unique professional development opportunity for teachers of film and media to meet, learn and be inspired. The conference’s industry, teaching and research strands bring together teacher delegates with speakers from the film, TV, online and games industries and researchers in HE, alongside plenary sessions, networking opportunities and film screenings.

Highlights of the 2018 conference included plenary speakers Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (award-winning actor, writer, director and producer) and Angela Jain (Managing Director, ITV Studios Entertainment). Further industry speakers joined us from Universal Pictures International UK, Kantar TMS, BBC, Channel 4, plus Virtual Umbrella and other exciting independent producers. Teaching sessions covered music video, applying theory, women filmmakers, cross-media projects, practical production, YouTube and vloggers, and using archive film. Research sessions included insight and analysis of TV coverage of the Paralympics, the impact of mobile video on citizen journalism, and Ofcom’s annual report into ‘Children’s Media Lives’.

“A wonderful conference. I have come back to school buzzing with ideas, as ever. I look forward to next year’s line-up.”
 — Teacher delegate 2018, Merseyside

“Excellent conference, well organised and relevant to the new specifications.”
 — Teacher delegate 2017, Shenfield

“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
