The BFI season of Gothic film

Throughout 2013, the BFI will be showcasing a season of ‘Gothic films’. This they define as delving ‘into the subconscious and latent desires that dwell in us all with some of the finest in monstrous chillers, ghoulish adventures and romantic horror’.

As a fan of ‘Gothic film’, I’m eagerly awaiting the release of which films will be included. They have stated so far that they will be releasing film restorations from the National Archive, along with dvds, and a BFI book (and the BFI dvd/book releases are always brilliant!!).

The BFI will be showcasing films at historic sites throughout the UK (which will be perfect for creating that chilling atmosphere that accompanies the films).

As a huge fan and supporter of the BFI and everything that they do for British film, I’m really looking forward to this.

There is little information released on the project so far, but you can read more here and also sign up to their email notifications to find out more on the project as new information is released.

Whatever films the BFI choose to release, this will certainly be a chilling year showcasing some of the most brilliantly terrifyingly uncanny films ever made.
