ICO news

  • Registration for our Young Audiences Screening Day (2 May, HOME Manchester) is now open until 5 April! First film announced: Max Minghella’s directorial debut Teen Spirit (pictured), a stylish and brave musical drama that stars Elle Fanning as an Isle of Wight teen dreaming of pop stardom. We’ll be announcing more films and speakers within the next few weeks, but if you’re planning on attending, we recommend registering as soon as possible – this event sold out last year.
  • In further exciting news, we’ve also confirmed the dates for ALL upcoming Screening Days until next spring. Mark your calendars for: Summer Screening Days (6-8 July 2019, Depot, Lewes), I.D. Screening Days (26-27 September 2019, Broadway Nottingham), Autumn Screening Days (9-11 November 2019, Showroom Sheffield), Archive Screening Day (5 December 2019, BFI Southbank, London) and Spring Screening Days (7-9 March 2020, BFI Southbank, London). We’ll be opening registration for these events in no time so watch this space!
  • The latest two programmes in our popular Britain on Film tour are currently available for bookings with subsidised fees, starting from as little as £20. During a time of intense political turmoil, growing public activism and ongoing debates, Protest! and Welcome to Britain offer a chance to explore a century of protest and new arrivals to the UK via touching and fascinating footage from around the country.
  • It’s getting closer! We’ll be opening applications for our next Developing Your Film Festival (DYFF) training course on 4 April 2019.
  • Want to put on an outdoor screening but not sure how to get started? Our new downloadable guide can help you with just that.
  • We’ve loved working with Korean Cultural Centre KCCUK and BFI to bring treasures of Early Korean Cinema to four brilliant cinemas across the UK this spring. There’s still two screenings left: don’t miss Tuition at Showroom Sheffield (31 March) and Hurrah! For Freedom at Queen’s Film Theatre Belfast (7 April).
