Julia Vickers’ Suggested Programme

Thanks to Julia Vickers of Bracknell Film Society for contributing this suggested programme of Booking Scheme titles, if you’d like to suggest a programme please get in touch

An autumn season programme for an established Film Society showing twice a month plus occasional special screenings. Located in a suburban area with a multiplex cinema in easy reach and independent exhibition a bit further away. Unapologetically taken from the ever-expanding BFFS Booking Scheme Catalogue!
