Manon has this to say about the appointment…
I am thrilled to be joining Film Hub North at such a pivotal moment as we step into the first years of BFI Screen Culture 2033. The North has been my home since moving to the UK, and it’s a privilege to take this opportunity to support such a dynamic, diverse and vibrant region. I cannot wait to continue the brilliant work Sally Folkard and the team have been doing; nurturing and championing new and emerging regional talents, giving children and young people opportunities to engage with film regardless of background and circumstances, as well as supporting FHN exhibitors in their commitment to offering audiences a rich, accessible and diverse screen culture.
Sally Folkard, who concludes her role as the Strategic Manager of Film Hub North at the end of February to take on the role of Head of Screen and Cultural Engagement at Bradford’s National Science and Media Museum says…
Watching Film Hub North grow over the last 10 years and working alongside an inspiring team focussed on supporting the independent film sector in the North has been incredibly rewarding and a privilege. FHN, the rest of BFI FAN, and the BFI NETWORK play such a key role in supporting, diversifying, and strengthening the UK film ecosystem and I have been honoured to have been part of an incredibly passionate community who are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what the region has to offer. I’m so excited to see FHN evolve with Manon’s leadership. She joins an ambitious and hugely talented team at an exciting time as the Hub develops its strategic regional priorities; and continues to work with FAN nationally to advocate for inclusion and resilience across the sector.
