British Film Institute BFI

Northumbria University has joined forces with the UK’s biggest screen body, the BFI, on an ambitious partnership that will provide leading networks, insight and experience with moving image culture and the screen industries for staff and students across the University.

The University’s aim is to work with BFI to support the expansion of the screen industry and its emerging workforce in the North East. It also enables students engagement with industry figures and BFI leads as well as specialist employability events to connect students to BFI networking opportunities. In the first year of the partnership, events have focused on career launch, on environmentally sustainable production, and on new and emerging job roles in the sector.

As part of the agreement all Northumbria students and staff have access to the award-winning BFI Player to stream critically acclaimed films.  

BFI academic lead: Dr. Sanghita Sen
