Selina Robertson

Selina has worked for over 14 years in the film industry. She earned her stripes at the BFI working in production, sales and eventually ending up where her heart lies – in film programming. From 2003-05 she co-programmed the BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (now BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival).

In 2005 she became a freelance film programmer and writer, curating queer film programmes in the UK and at international film festivals. The same year she enjoyed her first sojourn at the Independent Cinema Office (ICO), and was inspired to cofound Club Des Femmes, a queer-feminist film club.

She now divides her time between London and Berlin, running film clubs (she helped set up Co-Curate last year, a queer film art collective) and writing about cinema.
