BBF19 & CinePunked presents Burn All Books - Babel Belfast - Belfast

Join us for a heated panel discussion on censorship in literature and cinema, inspired by Ray Bradbury's novel and the Fran├žois Truffaut film adaptation of Fahrenheit 451. Who is to say what we should and shouldn't read?Should we ban books?Which books would you like to eradicate?The panel includes CinePunked's own Robert JE Simpson (editor, publisher) and R.B. Kelly (author, academic) plus Steven Rainey (BBC presenter and producer) and Neil Sedgewick (critic, Films & Faith).Post panel, join us for a ceremonial book burning. Bring along a book you'd like to see in the flames and join the debate.** All titles to be pre-registered before the ceremony. Sacred texts will not be permitted for the burning. Contact Cinepunked to register your chosen book.It's also possible to send your book for burning even if you can't attend.
