Born in East London, Hitchcock lived in the city for the first half of his life and worked in its film studios for almost 20 years. London was the star of many of his films, and Hitchcock is our star for the London 2012 Festival.
Two years ago the BFI began a major fundraising campaign - Rescue the Hitchcock 9 - in support of the BFI National Archive’s biggest single project to date: the full restoration of the director’s nine surviving silent films. Now, thanks to the generous support of our BFI Members, hundreds of Hitchcock fans, trusts and foundations, corporate partners, rights-holders and archives around the world, we can look upon these film afresh.
We begin our story with a series of landmark presentations of silent films across London, screened together with scores commissioned from some of Britain’s most exciting musical talents. From August to October the BFI present a complete Hitchcock retrospective at BFI Southbank featuring more silent film firsts and unmissable events.
To enter this exiting competition and for the chance to win two tickets to a Hitchcock screening at the BFI Southbank, please answer the following question.
1.Who is your favourite Hitchcock female lead and why?
2. If you where to dress as that female character, what in the VOH collection would you wear and why?
Please send your answers to email@example.com by Thursday, August 23.
