Merry Christmas

We hope you have enjoyed the first half of our 20th Year. We will be back on 6 January 2019 to continue with our look at world cinema. This season has more than its normal shares of relative blockbusters with Steve McQueen's 'Widows', Keira Knightley and Dominic West in 'Colette', plus a couple of different views on discrimination in the USA - 'The Hate U Give' - about a police shooting of a black boy - and 'If Beale Street Could Talk' - which follows the attempts of a young black woman trying to get her husband released after a false arrest for rape. We also have a couple of big hitters from Turkey and South Korea - Nuri Bilge Ceylan's 'The Wild Pear Tree' and Chang-dong Lee's 'Burning'. Take a look at the complete programme on this website - we think you will enjoy it! AND, of course, we have our TWENTIETH Keswick Film Festival from 28 February to 2 March.

Until then we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year; we hope our films will help you enjoy 2019!
