BFI Launch 'Made In Britain' Season

BFI Southbank has launched a 'Made In Britain' season which is due to kick off in April with a focus on home-grown talent.
The first installment will focus on female directors who according to the institute are under represented in the industry.
At present, only 14% of British films released in the UK are directed by women, yet the recent wave of acclaimed and innovative films they have made show female directors are not only winning awards around the world, but also enjoying box-office success. This showcase of visionary women directors will include documentary filmmaker and Academy Award nominee Lucy Walker (including Countdown to Zero, 2010), the celebrated Andrea Arnold (including Fish Tank, 2009) and Lynne Ramsay (including We Need to Talk About Kevin, 2011) and acclaimed visual artist Gillian Wearing (Self Made, 2010).
Though in the minority, these talented women explore form and content in radically fresh, thought-provoking ways. In a bid to highlight the creative imbalance that remains, Carol Morley, Joanna Hogg and Clio Barnard will each appear on-stage, following screenings of their films at BFI Southbank, to discuss their films, their careers and what the future may hold.
