NEW YEAR, NEW FILMS

As 2016 is now well and truly underway, it seems only appropriate to announce a new batch of Booking Scheme film titles for you to consider.

The new selection highlights Cinema For All’s commitment to showcasing wide-ranging and diverse cinema and includes many award-winning and nominated titles such as The Revenant, The Martian, Bridge of Spies, Joy and Cartel Land.

Critically acclaimed ballet theatre documentary Bolshoi Babylon is available now on early window and in March members will have early access to homelessness drama Time Out of Mind and modern warfare ethics film Hyena Road.

As well as the aforementioned Cartel Land and Bolshoi Babylon, we have several more critically acclaimed documentary titles available to book, including Cinema For All Community Cinema Conference favourite My Nazi Legacy, Manakamana, Best of Enemies, Drew: the Man Behind the Poster and, from new Booking Scheme partners Scottish Documentary Institute, the deeply emotional and affecting I Am Breathing and Seven Songs for a Long Life.

We have a trio of documentaries coming your way from the end of January – 3 1⁄2 Minutes, Ten Bullets; The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution; Student Cinema Conference favourite Fresh Dressed – all looking at different aspects of black culture in the United States.

As well as the many new and recent titles, several classic titles find their way onto the Scheme in 2016, including Japanese legend Takeshi Kitano’s classic Dolls, Kikujiro and Hana-bi.

We are very pleased to welcome Eros International, the leading UK distributor of Bollywood film titles, to the Booking Scheme. Titles such as Bol, English Vinglish, Love Aaj Kal, Provoked, and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela offer sights, sounds and voices not previously seen or heard on the Booking Scheme.

Following a tough divorce, 40-year-old Lucas has a new girlfriend, a new job and is in the process of re-establishing his relationship with his teenage son, Marcus. But things go awry. Not a lot. Just a passing remark. A random lie. And as the snow falls and the Christmas lights are lit, the lie spreads like an invisible virus. The shock and mistrust gets out of hand, and the small community suddenly finds itself in a collective state of hysteria, while Lucas fights a lonely fight for his life and dignity.

Synopsis from Trust Nordisk, press information and stills are also available

The film scored an excellent 81.4% in the audience reaction scores at the ICO Screening Days and has been called a return to form for Festen director Thomas Vinterberg with The Guardian‘s Peter Bradshaw saying “it is forthright, powerful, composed and directed with clarity and overwhelming force, yet capable of great subtlety and nuance.”

The Telegraph‘s Robbie Collins said “It is rare that a film can make you laugh, cry and shake with fury all at the same time; even rarer when it does so for the right reasons.”

To book the film simply send us a Booking Form

The Booking Scheme is a benefit for Members & Associates of BFFS – for information on joining head to the  BFFS website
