Katy McGahan

Katy worked at the BFI from 2001 to 2016, serving since 2008 as a non-fiction curator specialising in British documentary film from the 1920s to the present. Other areas of specialism include the history of official films, in particular the work of the Central Office of Information from 1946 to its closure in 2012; films used as evidence in Courts of Trial, and the history of health issues on film: she produced the BFI DVD release The Joy of Sex Education (2008).

Katy contributed chapters to the anthologies Shadows of Progress: Documentary Films of Post-War Britain (Palgrave/BFI, 2010), and Ealing Revisited (Palgrave/BFI, 2012). She wrote short essays for a number of BFI DVD booklets, and has been a prolific contributor to BFI digital platforms, including BFI Screenonline, the BFI Mediatheques, BFI InView and BFI Player, where she was the lead curator for the highly successful Britain on Film project.
