  1. Hello,

    I was wondering if and hoping this event was filmed or recorded? If so, would it be possible for you to link me or send me the audio or video please?

  2. Dear Ben,

    This is an external event (which was organized by the British Film Institute) so you will need to contact the relevant people based at the BFI directly to see if they have a recording of the event.

    Best wishes,
