What’s On: BFI announces Southbank’s popular monthly events

The BFI have announced that one of BFI Southbank’s most popular monthly events.

Mark Kermode Live in 3D at the BFI, will be moving online so that film fans can continue to engage with the latest movie news and discussions while BFI Southbank remains closed to the public.

The monthly show, in which critic and broadcaster Mark Kermode explores, critiques and celebrates film culture past and present, with the help of special guests from the industry, will take place online, for free, on BFI YouTube at 6.30pm on May 18 and June 15.

The show plans to bring lively and interactive conversation about what has been happening in the world of film, and to delve deeper into particular movies or topics, with a focus on the issues of the day and on diversity in front of and behind the camera.

The online show will feature a number of regular segments from the live BFI Southbank show – including Ask The Audience, Here’s The Thing, Guilty Pleasure and Coming Attractions, as well as interviews with special guests from across the industry.

Filled with Mark’s trademark wit and passion, the show recently celebrated its 50th edition and has welcomed to the BFI Southbank stage film luminaries such as Richard Dreyfuss, Sir Michael Caine, Rami Malek, Florence Pugh, Gemma Arterton, Steve Coogan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Sam Mendes.

Guests for the May and June events will be announced soon.

The monthly show is also broadcast on Kermode’s weekly podcast, Kermode on Film – www.acast/kermodeonfilm
