We hope that you join us in our partnership with Cheltenham International Film Festival 2020, which is moving from the South-West region to a nationwide film festival during this time of Covid-19.
We wish you happy viewing.
Four Highlights from the Cheltenham Online International Film Festival Programme
Lost Transmissions – Set in the LA music scene, Katherine O’Brien’s debut feature stars Simon Pegg and Juno Temple. Lost Transmissions launches the Festival on 8 June, and will be followed by a live streamed Q+A with Simon Pegg hosted by Eye For Film’s Jennie Kermode.
Antigone – An electrifying new Canadian film from Sophie Deraspe, in which a talented young Algerian emigrée denies herself a glittering future to save her fallen brother. Canada’s entry for 92nd Oscars and voted best Canadian film at TIFF; it is a vibrant film seething with palpable outrage.
Paradise – Alfio is given a new identity and sanctuary in a village in the Italian Alps after witnessing a Mafia hit. Funnily enough, the very hitman he’s fleeing turns up, having informed on his mob mates. A wry comedy of manners from director Davide Del Degan, part of our Italian Focus.
White Riot - Exhilarating documentary about the emergence of Rock Against Racism in 1976. Rubika Shah’s debut culminates in 1978 Victoria Park Carnival featuring The Clash, whose rock star charisma and conviction took RAR's message to the masses. Followed by a Q+A with Shah to close the Festival.
