4th 2020 March - Fuelling Film: Corporate Film & The Energy Sector

Talking Pictures

Talking Pictures will bring together guests from across the corporate film industry, to discuss corporate film within the energy sector, both in the fields of oil and gas, as well as in the field of renewable energy, such as sun and wind. The fossil fuel industry arguably powered the British documentary movement and today’s energy industry continues to fuel corporate film production particularly in the light of climate change. So the next Talking Pictures session Fuelling Film: Corporate Film & The Energy Sector promises to be a lively event when we will drill down into the part corporate film plays in external messaging; featuring outstanding work from the BFI archive and some of the best contemporary production. After the session there will be an opportunity to get well oiled in the BFI bar with colleagues and friends. That’s enough puns for now. See you on Wednesday 5th March!
