ACMI and the BFI present

Dissenters, Lovers and Ghosts: New British Cinema

Season

This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

Youthful. Colourful. Post-colonial. This is the real Britain on film.

This selection of feature length and short films curated by the BFI and ACMI celebrates the storytellers who throw away the rule book – and those who dig into the roots of their past to figure out who they are.

Presenting a range of diverse and formally daring works – including ear for eye, Mogul Mowgli and Lovers Rock – Dissenters, Lovers and Ghosts: New British Cinema showcases the most exciting and innovative new and established talent from the UK.

Curated by Stuart Brown and Nia Childs of the BFI, and ACMI Film Programs.

Presented in partnership with the British Film Institute

British Council black and white logo
