The UK’s first film festival dedicated to the work on screen of legend David Bowie
Friday 31 August – Sunday 2 September, ICA London
In the year of David Bowie’s 65th birthday, and the 40th anniversary of the seminal album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, it seems the perfect time to celebrate an overlooked aspect of the great man’s career, namely his contribution to cinema and the small screen. Somewhat surprisingly, such an event has never been held in the UK so this is a unique festival.
Renowned for consistently remaking his image and assuming alter egos in his music, Bowie has also played a fantastically wide range of characters in his films. Come join us at the ICA to celebrate the best of his celluloid appearances with Bowiefest, 3 days of screenings, talks, and Q&As.
