The BFI kicks off 2017 in style with a celebration of the work of Martin Scorsese, running from January to February 2017.

From the mean streets to Wall Street, the BFI Southbank will present a comprehensive retrospective of the director’s work to coincide with the release of his new film Silence, which will be the opening film of the season.

Scorsese will also personally choose 20 classics restored by his Film Foundation and World Cinema Project to run alongside the season, while GoodFellas and Taxi Driver will both be back in cinemas across the UK in glorious 4k restorations.

The season will be an incredible chance to see this films where they should be seen, on the big screen.

Stuart Brown, BFI Head of Programme and Acquisitions said: “Martin Scorsese’s contribution to cinema is unique and unparalleled; not only is he is one of America’s finest filmmakers with a remarkable body of work, but he has also, hrough his non-profit organisation, Film Foundation, brought back to life many classics of world cinema that might otherwise have disappeared from view. Scorsese’s own films are formally inventive, original in style, expertly cast, full of insight and highly entertaining. The BFI are thrilled to be bringing them back to the big screen where they belong.”

Films include: Shutter Island, The King of Comedy, The Wolf of Wall Street, Boxcar Bertha, Public Speaking, The Age of Innocence, No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, Shine A Light, The Last Waltz, GoodFellas.
