Migrant and Diasporic Cinema in Contemporary Europe

Migrant and Diasporic Cinema in Contemporary Europe

BABYLON Event at the 55th BFI London Film Festival

Dr. Gareth Jones, founder of BABYLON International and Managing Director of Scenario Films, is hosting a special event at this year's BFI London Film Festival. 

Date: Sunday, 16 October

Venue: The Gallery, BFI Southbank

Time: 11 a.m.  


 For the last five years BABYLON has brought together filmmakers of Europe's varied migrant and diasporic communities in a shared development forum dedicated to the exploration and extension of Europe's cultural diversity in film. With the backing of the EU's MEDIA MUNDUS, BABYLON INTERNATIONAL has now extended that bridge to Africa.

 On this fifth anniversary BABYLON BURNING assembles leading and emerging filmmakers from across Europe (and beyond) to describe their work and ask some difficult questions.

This panel event will address the following questions:

Is the UK out of step with its European and other partners?

Is the shift in national policy a threat to our filmmaking output?

How should filmmakers understand and represent a riot-torn society?
