Our 2015 programme got off to a strong last month with our first Minicine at The Mills film night of the year.
Despite a few setbacks prior to the event, including a change of feature film, the programme for the evening was ultimately well received by the evening’s audience. In the past, when we’ve been forced to change our advertised feature presentation it has resulted in screenings of I Am Breathing, which became our highest scoring feature at the time, and Moolaadé, which provoked some of the strongest reactions from audience members we’ve ever had.
Turn Me On, Dammit! was no exception, drawing much laughter from our audience and only just missed out on becoming an Audience Scores top five feature. The Blindness of the Woods too provided several laugh-out-loud moments thanks to its unabashed weirdness.
Turn Me On, Dammit! (2011) dir. Jannicke Systad Jacobsen – 4.73
Young Dreams dir. Kristoffer Borgli – 3.45
The Blindness of the Woods dir. Martín Jalfen & Javier Louernço – 3.73
