Lynn Nwokorie

Film Officer

Starting out in production for feature film, commercials and museum projects in both the US and UK, Lynn has since worked across exhibition and distribution for various national festivals and organisations including the BFI London Film Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest, the BFI and the ICO.

The last three years, Lynn has focused on cultural programming and increased access of independent film to national audiences, with now a concerted focus on cultivating socially impactful documentary filmmaking at the London and New York-based Doc Society Foundation.

With a new appointment as BFI Film Fund Officer, Lynn now focuses on developing and supporting UK documentary filmmakers as well as continuing programming for festivals and special events.
