General & Collecting News
Start a New Topic 


My name is Julia Evans and I am part of the Marketing Department here at the British Film Institute.

From September we shall be starting a season titled KING COAL, which is part of a 3 year UK project titled, THIS WORKING LIFE, celebrating the UK's 20th Century Industrial Heritage.

The King Coal programme showcases some remarkable material drawn from the BFI National Archive's documentary and fiction collections. Many of the screening will be presented by leading figures associated with the films and curators from the National Archive and will be showing both in London and Sheffield. There will also be a Mediatheque on Tour.

We were wondering if you might be interested in helping us in a publicity publicising the season by adding a link to your website, or mailing list, particularly as it will interest a number of your visitors?

Please do get in touch if you are interested in working together with us.
Best wishes,
