Birds Eye View Film Festival 2011
March 8th-17th 2011
BFI Southbank, ICA & Southbank Centre
For 2011 we were delighted to have the London premiere of 2010's special guest and world-leading filmmaker Susanne Bier's unforgettable In A Better World, which followed Oscar and Golden Globe wins with the BEV 2011 Best Feature Award. The programme also included many international debut features and yet another astonishing short film line-up – a signal, we hope, of a bright future.
Our Bloody Women retrospective took a darker twist, examining women's contribution to horror, from gothic origins to modern vampires; and encompassed the 2011 edition of Sound & Silents, screening silent classics with new scores by cutting-edge female musicians, including a new venture at the Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall, where we premiered work by Imogen Heap, Micachu and more.
