Anyone else here a member?
If so what sort of films do they show in there, and what sort of time of day do they show:
With there Archive Tour- Rare opportunity to visit the BFI National Archive twice a year
can you chose the time or is it a set time of year/day etc?
Also anyone subscribe to there Sight and Sound
Thanks in advance for any info/help.
I've been a member for several years. I don't go very often but there have been several great events (like the premiere of David Lynch's INLAND EMPIRE
followed by an interview with Lynch), and comprehensive seasons of director's work which enabled me to check out those rare Antonionis or Fellinis that I hadn't seen.
As for what they show and when, there's loads of info on the BFI website:
Why not just pop in and check out the book/video shop and mediatheque?
I'm off to see my favourite movie Walkabout
this Saturday which is followed by an interview with Jenny Agutter, Luc Roeg and Nicolas Roeg.
I don't know about the archive I'm afraid.
Sight And Sound is on sale in W. H. Smiths if you don't want to commit to a subscription.
