Polish Exilic Cinema and Listening to Records: Film events in the region

Yes our screening of C.R.A.Z.Y on the 26th January has SOLD OUT, but not to fear, there are some other fantastic film events going on in the region over the next couple of weeks.

Shipley Film Society – Moon, ‘Hunky Dory’ and Pop Will Eat Itself

Sunday 22nd January, 7pm – £4 (£3 for concessions) at Kirkgate Centre, Shipley

Shipley Film Society are teaming up with The Record Club to offer an evening of record listening and film viewing with their unique line-up. The film being screened is one of the finest science fiction films in recent years, Duncan Jones’ Moon (2009). Records being played are themed around the film and will include David Bowie and Pop Will Eat Itself.

See their website for more details.

Minicine will be there, so if you want to head over, just get in touch on Twitter, Facebook, or e-mail minicine@live.co.uk

Subversion and Transgression in Polish Exilic Cinema: The Cases of Borowczyk and Zulawski

Wednesday 25th January, 6pm at the National Media Museum, Bradford – FREE

The University of Bradford’s Media School hold various guest lectures/events throughout the year in their Timecode Seminar programme, which are FREE and welcome to everybody. The events that I have attended in the past have been inclusive and welcoming, as well as being extremely insightful with real masters within their field presenting.

This talk sounds particularly fascinating, and – not to give too much away – ties in perfectly with an establishing plan for a near-future Minicine special event.

Michael Goddard (Media Studies lecturer at the University of Salford and reviews editor of Studies in Eastern European Cinema) presents some pre-1989 Polish cinema that you may have never had the opportunity to hear about. It focuses on Polish filmmakers in exile that were creating an expressive genre cinema far removed from their national contemporaries of the ‘Cinema of Moral Concern’ (Wajda, Kièslowski, etc). We at Minicine are all about the discovery of filmmakers that have been buried by history, so the chance to hear more about Valerian Borowcyk and Andrzej Zulawski will be welcomed with open arms.

For more information check out the Timecode Seminar Website

Minicine will without doubt be at this event and would like to welcome anybody interested to get in touch, meet up and possibly grab a drink before/after. Just message us on Twitter, Facebook, or e-mail minicine@live.co.uk
