BFI Gothic School

In late 2013 BFI will be running events, screenings, courses, study days and publishing learning resources online, in print, and with collaborating partners, all around the theme of the Gothic. We have three questions driving the programme:

  • Why does the Gothic endure, across forms, media, and centuries? It’s the genre that won’t die..
  • Why is the Gothic so associated with aspects of British identity and culture?
  • And why is the Gothic such a culturally marginal genre, in spite of its wide appeal?

Over 2013, BFI will be exploring these questions, in particular relation to British film, with teachers, academics, film-makers, students, and the general, cinema-going, vampire-loving, Gothic-dressing, public.
