BFI Media Conference

3-4 July 2014

Inspiring and supporting teachers with the latest trends and approaches across industry, research and classroom teaching.

The conference welcomes Adam MacDonald (Director, Sky 1 HD) and Alison Owen (Founder and Producer, Ruby Film & Television and producer Saving Mr Banks, Shaun of the Dead) as our plenary speakers. Further Industry speakers include Samira Ahmed (BBC Newswatch), Jesse Armstrong (writer Babylon, Peep Show), Rosie Allimonos (Head of Content Partnerships, Original Channels – Google EMEA) and Sam Lavender (Commissioning Executive – Film 4).

Research and teaching sessions cover everything from the latest ideas around digital learning to teaching Horror, and from teaching media regulation to the value of teaching about media industry failure rather than success. And we’re delighted to include special events with writers Owen Jones (Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class) and Jon Savage (Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture).
