We are now inviting cinemas, festivals and multi arts & media organisations to present seasons, events and screenings that celebrate the work of Powell & Pressburger and their influence.

Conceived by the BFI and delivered in partnership with FAN, Cinema Unbound is a great opportunity for exhibitors in the Midlands to share their knowledge and interest in the extraordinary filmmaker duo.

The Cinema Unbound programme is being launched to increase awareness of the cinematic universe of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. The filmmaker duo are internationally renowned and respected but less well known in the UK. Their creative partnership in the 1940s created some of the most stylistically ambitious, thematically rich, subversive, and sensual British films ever made.

Powell and Pressburger not only transformed British cinema, but the vast, subversive, and seductive creative universes they created have gone on to influence the wider world of cinema and bled into many forms of popular culture.

Backed by a UK wide Press and marketing campaign and a central listing platform, the season will have a broad audience appeal.

The deadline for Bespoke, Cross FAN Proposals (and Menu Expressions of Interest to be included in initial listings announcement) is Friday 30 June 5pm (BST)

You must be a member of Film Hub Midlands as part of BFI Film Audience Network to access support from this programme.
