Cinema Speak

Friendly and informal post film chats in The Cellar Bar with Ben Reynolds

Join resident BFI young programmer Ben Reynolds for a select handful of post screening discussions each cinema season.

This is an informal chance for audiences to chat about their reactions to the film over a drink in The Cellar Bar, as well as an exciting opportunity to see British independant and international films often not found locally.

Parasite - Mon 23 Mar 8pm

Japan Foundation double-bill - Fri 27 Mar 7pm

Portrait of a Lady on Fire - Mon 6 Apr 8pm

The Truth - Wed 6 May 8pm
