The members' ticket ballot has now finished and the event is sold out / full. Members have until 20.30pm on Friday 13 December 2013 to claim the ticket(s) they've won in the ballot and if they don't claim them then any remaining tickets will be made available from Saturday for other members to buy. If you want a ticket you need to be (a) a BFI member and (b) get ready to buy on Saturday. If that fails then try again a bit nearer the time (and on the day too of course) as someone may return a ticket at the last-minute.
Oh this sounds cool!

David Arnold introduces You Only Live Twice
Thursday 23 January 2014
NFT1, BFI, Southbank
David Arnold is talking about and introducing You Only Live Twice which is one of the films and film scores (music by John Barry) that inspired him to become a film composer (and he's scored a fair few Bond films himself).
I like David Arnold and have heard him speak at a couple of events. He's funny, thoughtful and knowledgeable and has a really good strategic overview* of what it is that needs to be done in terms of creating music for the screen. Not to mention he's written some lovely music for all sorts of films and television programmes. Highly recommended.
*Yeah I was looking for something a bit less business-speak but I suppose that will do.
To get tickets...
- You need to be a BFI member
- You need to apply for a ticket in the ballot (one is free but you pay for a second if you want two).
- Or, if you have an American Express card you might be able to get tickets that way but they don't seem to be listed yet.
Blow the bloody doors off! An evening of film music from Michael Caine films at Barbican on 6 February 2014, including The Ipcress File (John Barry), Alfie, Get Carter and The Italian Job
- Nice things said in an academic journal article about David Arnold's scores for James Bond - quite right too (8 November 2013)
- Is there a Songkick for films? (4 March 2012) - I always feel that I hear about these types of events through good fortune rather than good advertising, think of what I might miss though ;)
