A lot of the film festivals at the BFI focus of classic films from the bygone era, and generally attract a mature audience. August, however, has been made especially for a younger demographic. Teenage Kicks celebrates twentieth century teen culture with film screenings for teens, about teens, and even by teens. The season is meant to illustrate that 'teenage' is less about a number, and more about an attitude and energy; it explores the birth of the teenager and the spirit that comes with it.

Standard tickets are £8.15 - £11.50, but 15 - 25 year olds can get tickets for £6 or £12 for two. To do this, you must book by phone or in person at the box office, rather than online, as you will need to provide proof of ID.

You will be able to explore what it was like to be a teenager through the decades, with eighties films such as Fast Times at Ridgemont High and To Our Loves , Kids and Welcome to the Dollhouse from the nineties, and enter the twenty-first century with Thirteen and Margaret .

Teenage Kicks is also be looking towards the future of cinema, and is running filmmaking workshops in the Atrium. These include lessons in cinematography, directing, writing, and costume design. While your there, check out the set. Each week the atrium will be transformed into the bedroom of a different teenage film character.
