Ever wanted to venture into the world of foreign films? If so, then you’ll find not one but two on offer at Gloucester Guildhall on Saturday 1 September 2012, as part of its involvement in national film festival Scala Beyond.
The six-week film season celebrates independent cinema in the UK, and aims to shine a spotlight on the passion, determination and enthusiasm of innovative film programmers and venues, such as Gloucester Guildhall, that keep the UK industry alive and thriving.
Organisers said: ‘For a cinema like Gloucester Guildhall, the festival is a perfect fit, committed as they are to presenting the people of Gloucester with the opportunity to experience as diverse a range of films as possible.
‘We carefully schedule art house, independent British and world cinema features alongside quality mainstream films, playing to the tastes of our core audience whilst simultaneously encouraging them out of their comfort zone.’
The first film lined-up up for the Joy of Subtitles evening is Little White Lies at 4.50pm, from French director and the man behind the multi award-winning The Artist, Jean Dujardin.
Said to be the perfect introduction to easy-watching French cinema, it follows a group of thirty-somethings as they embark on their annual holiday together, with friendships and convictions sorely tested when they are forced to confront uncomfortable home truths and long-kept secrets.
Next up at 8.30pm is Oscar-nominated French film, Incendies, a powerful and deeply moving mystery drama that follows a set of twins’ journey to the Middle East to discover their family history, and fulfil their mother’s last wishes.
What’s more, if you buy a ticket for Little White Lies, you can watch Incendies for free, and there will also be drinks and light meals available in the bar between screenings, so why not make a night of it?
