is the festival of big, bold cinema experiences. It’s a million miles away
from streaming a film on your phone, wrapping you in sound, light and
colour and presenting some of the most iconic moments ever brought to the
screen. It’s the festival that reminds you why going to the cinema is so
The Festival returns to our brilliant Pictureville Cinema 13-16 October.
And once again we’ll be welcoming film lovers from across the world to
experience big screen film technology.
The full programme is now available to view online. Highlights include:

Agony and the Ecstasy (1965) introduced by film historian and
