Welcome to the 8th Film Festival...

...and a week of exciting events in the Holme Valley. A great year for film with blockbusters and Oscar winners of real quality. A big, strong selection of films and documentaries from around the world - and our first Outdoor Cinema on Saturday and Sunday with classics and music films.

The main theme is the 50th Anniversary of Psychedelia – coinciding with a big national exhibition by Pink Floyd – with a mind-bending programme of talks, cult films and music. We celebrate the success of black actors and films and feature films on disability.

Your film at the Picturedrome:  A United Kingdom

Dir. Amma Asante, Czech Rep, UK, USA, 2015

 

Botswana's Prince Khama shocks the world when he marries a white woman in London. A true, crowd-pleasing story of love and tolerance told with conviction and warmth with superb central performances from David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike.

Dir. Ralph Thomas, UK, 1962

 

Real life friends, Manchester's 20 year-old Ian McShane ('a real discovery') and 21 year-old John Hurt ('a sensitive roommate'), make their film debuts in this early sixties drama about students and their lives in a provincial University (Lincoln). Tame now but entertaining.

Dir. Rosemary Myers, Australia, 2017

 

Really charming Australian coming-of-age drama that is surreal, offbeat and big-hearted in the style of Wes Anderson. A little gem that signposts Director Myers and teenage actress, Bethany Whitmore, as talents for the future.

Dir. Garth Davis, Australia/US

Uplifting and moving true story of the journey of an Indian street-child to adopted Australia is an excellent family drama full of mystery and romance, and a whirlwind of emotions with fine performances from Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.

Dir. Asghar Farhadi, Iran/France, 2016

Best Foreign Film Oscar winner. One of the world's best directors with a potent, intelligent and suspenseful plot, turning the mysteries of personality into a gripping and disquieting drama.

Dir. Christine Frantz, UK, 2017

Just released documentary on the two year journey from a Nottingham bedroom to Britain's angriest band. Their brutally honest lyrics and uncompromising stance make them the only band today of any relevance. Unmissable.

Dir. Cristian Mungiu, Romania, 2016

We would do anything for our children, wouldn't we? A brilliant, masterly, complex tragedy of moral values that is utterly compelling. Out of the oppressive, corrupt Romanian regime comes a genuine five star film.
