The Big Thrill at BFI Southbank

12:00pm – 9:00pm
£5.00 – £10.00
Cultural Festival

Immerse yourself in the tense world of the Thriller – one of the most loved film-genres in the country. Celebrating with over 15 events including a VR experience, discussions with world-class screen-writers, journalists, directors, composers, actors and storytellers alongside screenings of the classics, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better way to spend a Sunday. From discussions on The Female Body in Gothic Crime Thrillers to Conspiracy and Paranoia in the Age of Fake News, there’s plenty to get your brain thinking as well as a series of shorts, archive screenings and more.

For the Princely sum of £10 you can arm yourself with an All Day Pass that grants access to 15 events across the day, while those aged 16-25 can grab one for just £5. Seating at each event is first-com-first-served though so pick your highlights and arrive a little early to ensure you get your front row seats.  Four of the events will require separate tickets, including an audience with Abi Morgan, the writer behind River and The Hour, as well as the mystery screening.
