FRC News – Cine-City’s Brighton Film Festival 2011
Hot on the heels of LFF, we are very excited to let you know that Front Room Cinema will be attending Cine-City’s Brighton Film Festival 2011
As you all know I have been trekking up to the big smoke over the last few weeks attending the press screenings and gala’s at London Film Festival. Also a lot of you know that while I have seen some amazing films and met some fantastic people I have found the train fares a little stressful on the pocket.
Well fear not FRC readers as coming up next month we have a fantastic festival right on our doorsteps.
Now into its 8th year Cine-City is bringing us the ‘Brighton Film Festival’. From the 17th November to 4th December there is going to be an absolutely rammed line up of films being screened at Duke of York’s Picturehouse as well as other venues.
The festival is going to feature a fantastic mix of international cinema with premieres, previews, artists’ cinema and installations. Along with talks and debates, free educations screenings and treasures of the archive.
Opening the festival is the brilliant SHAME from director Steve McQueen. This is the second feature from McQueen and is a gripping and honest depiction of sexual compulsion, need and desire. Starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan this is a film that is getting very high acclaim on the festival circuit and rightly so. I was lucky enough to see this last week at LFF and I can say it is one of my top films from 2011 so far. What a great opening film. Well done Cine-City for securing that title.
The full line up is going to be available from 29th October. So stay tuned for that. We can do the usual thing where I ask for help in choosing my schedule. You know I am not the most organized of bloggers.
Below is a trailer for the event, which gives us more of an insight into what films are showing…
