After a few weeks of tragic news, o...

Among the multitude of tributes, tweets and headlines mourning the death or Carrie Fisher and celebrating her life, one that is perhaps the most befitting of accolades, came from her Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford.

Remembering our reasons…

Often in life the difficulties we're presented with can wear you away. Something anyone who's ever made a film will vouch for and no doubt be able to show an array of battle scars. But it's worth stopping every once in a while to remember why we took up the battle in the first place…. From the BFA's manifesto: "The next generation of filmmakers and...
