On Thursday November 5th, the BFI and Latimer hosted the official #25andUnder campaign launch in celebration of the BFI unveiling its new scheme which allows movie-goers aged 16 to 25 to purchase tickets at a reduced rate of £3. Bringing on Latimer as a partner with the aim of engaging a new generation of creatives, the BFI opened up their doors for a very successful, very packed night.
The sold out event was an absolute hit, as the BFI opened their doors to a wide range of creative talent from across the country to enjoy a drink and talks from industry professionals like Mo Ali and Nathan Bryon. Both Latimer and the BFI invited members from their youth networks as well as new and exciting guests who are making a statement in the creative industry. The event hosted some of the brightest young creatives and aspiring film makers in London to celebrate and mingle. There was plenty of networking, laughing, and fun that was had by all, including the Latimer staff.
“‘The event was a sell out! There were good vibes, like minded people, and most importantly you could feel the passion in the room. Latimer and the BFi through events like these are giving the future of the British creative industry a very positive look,” said London-based actor, Will Wilkinson.
The event, however, was more than just fun and games; it was held to spread the word about the #25andUnder campaign to engage younger audiences within the local arts community.
“The BFI is the home of British film so it’s really important that it engages with the best and brightest of young British talent. This new £3 scheme will allow a new generation of young people to be inspired by great films,” said co-founder of Latimer Group, Jack Woodcraft.
Latimer is proud to support this new initiative as it really fits with our ethos of fostering emerging youth talent and helping them further their careers in the creative industry.
