The BFI’s Martin Scorsese Season will place the director’s films back on the big screen where they deserve to be seen, offering younger audiences the chance to experience his work in the cinema for the first time, while allowing others to become reacquainted with this towering body of work.
Alongside the season, re-releases, events and BFI Player collection, audiences will also be able explore Scorsese’s work through dedicated articles in Sight & Sound, the BFI’s international film magazine.
Stuart Brown, BFI Head of Programme and Acquisitions said: “Martin Scorsese’s contribution to cinema is unique and unparalleled; not only is he is one of America’s finest filmmakers with a remarkable body of work, but he has also, through his non-profit organisation, The Film Foundation, brought back to life many classic, silent, independent and world cinema titles that might otherwise have disappeared from view. Scorsese’s own films are formally inventive, original in style, expertly cast, full of insight and highly entertaining. The BFI are thrilled to be bringing them back to the big screen where they belong”.
