If you want to know how independent British cinema happens and what makes it great, join us for this special on-stage talk with producer Elizabeth Karlsen  presented by Bechdel Test Fest – an ongoing celebration of women in film.

This in-depth and illuminating session will explore a film-making career that ranges from Elizabeth’s time with pioneering Palace Pictures in the late 80s, when British cinema was struggling to make an international impact, through landmark successes such as The Crying Game, Little Voice and Made in Dagenham, and on up to recent releases Their Finest and On Chesil Beach. Special attention will be given to Elizabeth’s ‘passion’ project Carol, directed by Todd Haynes, a film that stands as testament to just how dedicated a producer must be to pursue an artistic dream – and to realise it. Elizabeth Karlsen will be in conversation with Bechdel Test Fest’s Beth Webb.

Head to the Great Arch Hall entrance for 18.30 to receive your complimentary cocktail from the Grey Goose pop-up bar, accessed via Victoria Embankment. Talks start at 19.00 and last approximately one hour.

Book your ticket for the accompanying feature film (Behind the Screen ticket and film ticket must be booked individually) and you'll receive a priority space at the front of the courtyard with Grey Goose cushions and blankets and a second cocktail from the Grey Goose East Wing Bar.
