End Of Season

Thank you all for coming to another great season of films. As you can see from the scores, it would seem the people of Keswick agree that Departures was a worthy Oscar winner, not only did it win the Film Festival Audience Award but is now the highest rated film in the club's history.

We'll be back in September with our Autumn programme of films and if you have any suggestions please do get in touch.

Don't forget you can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Departures - Sunday 11th March 5pm

Departures won both our Festival Audience Award and the Best Film in a Foreign Language Oscar last year. Quite a few of you didn't get to see it at the Festival, which is such a pity that we've decided to extend the KFC season and show it again.

Un Proph├Ęte - Sunday 4th April 5pm

We haven't used the word 'unmissable' much this season, but look at what the
Evening Standard critic says:
'Some films have World Cinema Classic stamped all over them. A Prophet has already won the Grand Prix at Cannes, the Best Film Award at the London Film Festival, and it will surely scoop the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in a month or so. (He was wrong, like nearly everyone else! - ed.) It is two-and-a-half hours long but I wouldn't have minded another hour. It is the best film about French society since La Haine, which came out no less than 15 years ago. But the reach of the film goes well beyond France and beyond Europe: it might be the most gripping work of art this year, and not seeing it could seriously damage your interestingness.'
Andrew O'Hagan, London Evening Standard
And the view from the USA (about a French film, remember!): 'Sensational, sweeping and precisely observed. A pitch-perfect film.' Manohla Dargis, New York Times. It's our film for Sunday, of course, at 5pm as usual. But don't forget, it's no longer the last of the season, with Departures coming up on 11th April.
