Welcome to the BFI Media Conference 2017! 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. This year’s highlights include plenary speakers Jay Hunt (Chief Creative Officer, Channel 4), Gurinder Chadha OBE (Director, writer, producer Viceroy’s House, Bend it Like Beckham and many more!) and David Gauntlett (Professor of Creativity and Design and Director of Research, School of Media, Arts & Design, University of Westminster).
Industry sessions include speakers from the BBC and independent TV production, Altitude Film Distribution on Moonlight and Lady Macbeth (pictured), Criterion Games on Star Wars Battlefront — Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission, plus film production, marketing and music video. Teaching sessions include innovative approaches to theory and practical work, plus new ideas for finding resources, dissecting TV genre, exploring ideology with experimental film, and investigating whether what we know about fake news is true. Research sessions include Nordic Noir in the UK, News, Social Media and Young Consumers and Ofcom’s Study of 8-17-year-olds, ‘Children’s Media Lives.’
