Sue worked at the BFI for some 30 years before her retirement in 2016, including roles as acquisitions officer and assistant keeper of the non-fiction collection, before becoming a non-fiction curator in the new curatorial team when it was established in 2008, with a specialty in official film.
Her specialist responsibility as curator was to oversee, manage and expand the Public Records collection of government films in collaboration with colleagues at the National Archives, and to manage the accession of the historic moving image collections of the now defunct Central Office of Information. But she also drew on her wide knowledge of the Archive’s non-fiction holdings and her expertise of government and official filmmaking in her extensive programming for public screenings, video releases and digital platforms, including BFI Screenonline, the BFI Mediatheques, BFI InView and BFI Player. She curated BFI Player’s Home Front on Film collection and the related DVD set Ration Books and Rabbit Pies: Films from the Home Front.
