For BFI Film Academy SCENE we interview young filmmakers and BFI Film Academy alumni live most Thursdays at 4pm on our BFI Film Academy Instagram channel. SCENE provides an opportunity for young filmmakers to promote their films and gives you a chance to watch some amazing new shorts, ask questions and learn from your filmmaking peers. The Monday before, we share a link to the film to be discussed in that week’s Q&A across the BFI Film Academy social channels. You can send us your questions for the filmmaker in advance, or submit them live during the event.

Our next season of SCENE will be focused on BFI Film Academy Specialist Course alumni. We will ask them about what the learnt on the course and what they have gone on to do in the screen industries afterwards.

We will be interviewing:

Our last season of SCENE, run by our new cohort of Young Programmers, was centred on the theme of ‘Music and Movement’.
