BFI celebrates 10 years of Warp Films with Made In Britain season

Dead Man’s Shoes to screen with live musical accompaniment

Warp Films will be celebrate its 10th anniversary with a strand in the Made In Britain season at BFI Southbank, and Total Film is proud to be a media partner for the event.

Warp Records kicked off in Sheffield in 1989, and in 2001, founders Rob Mitchell and Steve Beckett teamed up with producer Mark Herbet to launch the film arm.

Shane Meadows has been one of the most prominent filmmakers to flourish under Warp Films, directing Dead Man’s Shoes, This Is England and Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee under the banner.

Those films and more will be shown as part of the celebration. Dead Man’s Shoes will also get the ‘Sonic Cinema Presents’ treatment, with a live score composed by Gavin Clark (Clayhill, UNKLE) and performed by a live band for added atmospheric resonance.

Also included in the line-up are All Tomorrow’s Parties, This Is England ’86 and ’88, Bunny And The Bull, Four Lions, Submarine, Tyrannosaur, Kill List and Berberian Sound Studio.

Plus, there’ll be a programme of Warp Films Shorts, and Adam Buxton will present a BUG special. And, for 15 to 25-year-olds, there’s a Production Masterclass.
