Mark Cousins

Mark Cousins is an influential and inspiring figure in film. He took us on an enlightening journey with his documentary The Story of Film: An Odyssey and has now returned with A Story of Children and Film. You may also know him as the host of BBC2’s Moviedrome, Edinburgh Film Festival’s former programmer or the man who teamed up with Tilda Swinton to tug a portable film festival across the Scottish Highlands.

As a critic and filmmaker, Mark has a vast knowledge of both film history and the industry, so this is your opportunity to ask him for advice and insights!
