We are inviting cinemas, festivals and multi arts & media organisations to present seasons, events and screenings that celebrate the work of Powell & Pressburger and their influence.
Dive into the cinematic universe of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger whose creative partnership in the 1940s created some of the most stylistically ambitious, thematically rich, subversive, and sensual British films ever made.
Conceived by the BFI and delivered in partnership with FAN, Cinema Unbound is the greatest celebration yet of this extraordinary duo of filmmakers.
Powell and Pressburger not only transformed British cinema, but the vast, subversive, and seductive creative universes they created has gone on to influence the world of cinema and bled into wider popular culture – allowing for numerous entry points into their work for audiences in line with BFI’s Screen Culture 2033 priorities.
Backed by a UK wide Press and marketing campaign and a central listing platform, the season will have a broad audience appeal.
