Our next screening at Armley Mills Industrial Museum will take place on Thursday 22nd, November in the fantastic Palace Picturehouse. We will be screening indie comedy Kenny and tickets are available now. We’ll have a full preview up shortly, but in the meantime we wanted to tell you a little bit about our December screening.
We want to say thank you for all your continued support and enthusiasm you’ve shown us over the last year so we’re offering you the opportunity to decide what we show for our last screening of the year.
To make the selection seem less daunting, and so no one suggests sing-a-long Grease 2, we’ve shortlisted 5 films from the superb BFFS film catalogue for you to choose from:
First up for your consideration we have Vittorio De Sica’s neo-realist Bicycle Thieves, or The Bicycle Thief, a story set in postwar Rome about a man, accompanied by his son, searching for his stolen bike so he may return to work.
Helmed by Milos Forman, who would later go on to win the Best Director Oscar for One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, The Firemen’s Ball sees the 86th birthday celebrations of the former Fire Department chief turn sour after someone begins stealing the prizes for the raffle and farcical who-dunnit ensues.
Heavenly Creatures, directed by the Lord of the Rings himself – Peter Jackson, is a fantasy drama based on real events and tells the story of two girls and their intense friendship that ultimately leads to death. Starring Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey.
In Closely Watched Trains a virgin train conductor tries all he can to get laid but before it can enter the tunnel will his train become derailed? WARNING: contains hanky panky.
Finally we have Ondi Timoner’s We Live In Public, a 2009 documentary that takes a look at the effects the Internet has had and will have on society in the 21st century. See what happened when ‘King of the dot.com Boom’, Josh Harris, invited 100 people to live in a bunker under New York City for 30 to have their every movement broadcast across the web.
Each film deserves to be seen but the question is which one do you want to see? Please take the time to look through the trailers above and don’t forget to vote below. The film with the most votes will be announced on 22nd November at our screening of Kenny and shown in Armley Mills’ Palace Picturehouse on Thursday, 20th December at 7PM.
