Jazz Weekender

With live jazz in the Riverfront and foyer, screenings of archive TV jazz classics, and a live performance by the legendary Sir John Dankworth, this was a Weekender to remember at BFI Southbank. Running from June 12-14, the weekend of events also marked the culmination of our London in Motion competition, whereby young people submitted a short film evoking the capital on the move to win a soundtrack by Ronnie Scott's house band. With a judging panel including Sir John Dankworth, Nicholas Hoult, and Daniel Kaluuya, the competition was won by Tom Cleary with Slow Down. The Jazz Weekender was presented in association with Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, marking their 50th birthday, and formed a part of the Mayor's Story of London celebrations.
