ICO news

  • As we speak, we’re at the BFI Southbank for Archive Screening Day, our one-day event devoted to showcasing films from international, national and regional archives. It’s not just about the films though – we’re also hosting a range of amazing talks and workshops to help fuel people’s cinematic inspiration!
  • Last month saw the launch of our BFI Comedy Genius tour, a collection of twelve titles that will be screening across the breadth of the UK until the end of January next year. So do make sure to get in touch with us if you want to pay homage to cinematic legend Buster Keaton with a screening of The General, or host a movie and noodle’s night with Juzo Itami’s hilarious Tampopo.
  • Stylish. Superb. Simply amazing. Just some of the words that we’ve been throwing around the office to describe our new trailer for our new tour (in partnership with Studiocanal) of four films by Margarethe von Trotta, The Personal is Political. Head on over to the tour page now to have a look for yourself, as well as get more information on booking these fantastic films to screen in your cinema.
  • To further support the tour, we’ve commissioned some exciting new writing on the influence and importance of von Trotta’s films from a range of academics, curators and writers across different generations. See our microsite of these pieces to date here.
