Discover free films for watching, discussing and exploring filmmaking.
To celebrate Music Day on June 21, we're working with BFI Film Audience Network (FAN) to host several free music-related film screenings across England and Scotland on the day itself.
As well as one-off screenings of School of Rock in London and Fantasia in Scotland, as part of our commitment to increasing cultural cinema screenings for young people across the UK, several more screenings across both nations will be of upbeat South African film Felix, in which a young boy aspires to be a saxophonist like his late father, but has to learn the instrument in secret due to his disapproving mother.
All of these free Music Day screenings are taking place simultaneously at 10:00am on Tuesday 21 June 2016 (with the exception of the Lairg screening - see below), and are entirely free to attend for everyone - be they club members or not. Note that all three films are rated certificate PG.
Numbers are limited, so be sure to book as soon as possible to ensure your club or class are guaranteed tickets. Find further details about the screenings and book your places below:
We also have a brilliant Felix film guide which you can download now in preparation for a post-screening discussion:
