CINEMA FOR ALL SOUTH WEST VIEWING SESSIONS, 26 MARCH AT ARMSTRONG HALL AND 9 APRIL AT CALSTOCK ARTS.
Oscar nominees and festival favourites head the line-up for Cinema for All’s South West Group’s double-header Spring Viewing Sessions! The six new releases on DVD and Blu-ray are to be screened at two venues in the east and west of the South West region in March and April. The selection includes two new releases from the Cinema For All Booking Scheme – the BAFTA and Golden Globe and Oscar winner Moonlight and The Olive Tree, the latest from the director of Even the Rain with a superb screenplay from Ken Loach collaborator, Paul Laverty. Two winners from last year’s Berlin Festival are also scheduled for the preview screenings: the gripping documentary Fire at Sea won the Golden Bear and Mia Hansen Løve was voted Best Director for Things to Come. The line-up is completed by the recent British independent comedy, Burn, Burn, Burn and, just confirmed, Manchester by the Sea, starring Casey Affleck, who won the Best Actor award at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and the Oscars. Altogether, arguably the best line-up of previews that we have been able to offer for some years.
The two venues and dates are:
Sunday 26 March – Armstrong Hall, Thornbury
Cinema For All South West return to the Armstrong and Cossham Halls, guests of Thornbury Picture House in the South Gloucestershire town close to the M5, just north of Bristol.
Sunday 9 April – Calstock Arts, Cornwall
Two weeks later, Cinema For All South West’s hosts are one of Carn to Cove’s new venues in the Old Chapel on the banks of the river Tamar about 7 miles from Tavistock. After the success of the Viewings in Hayle and Lostwithiel, Cinema For All South West are delighted to be collaborating again with Claire Marshall and Carn to Cove.
