BFI 75th Birthday Celebrations
To celebrate its 75th birthday the BFI are running two special promotions this September. The first sees 75 DVDs from their catalogue on sale at the special price of £9.99 nationwide throughout September, a reduction of half the normal RRP.
This one-of-a-kind promotion includes Jean-Luc Godard’s Bande à part; Jean-Pierre Melville’s Le Cercle rouge; Terence Davies’ Distant Voices, Still Lives; Jack Clayton’s The Innocents; Luchino Visconti’s The Leopard; Jean Renoir’s La Règle du jeu; and BFI’s best-selling DVD of all time, Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai.
In addition, three of the UK’s leading retailers – Amazon, Play and Moviemail – have each chosen ten titles from the BFI catalogue to create their own exclusive celebratory 75th anniversary DVD box set. Housed in deluxe, limited edition packaging, the collections will be on sale from 1 September at the remarkable price of £75.00. At standard prices, the sets contain £200 worth of DVDs. Follow the links for details on the sets.
For the whole of September, the BFI will celebrate its 75th with a bumper programme of special events, screenings, film seasons and special offers. For more information visit www.bfi.org.uk/75
