Bath Film Festival will be championing diverse voices and adding new ways for the public to enjoy cinema when it presents its 26th annual programme of fresh features, world classics, emerging talent showcases, insider talks and special events at venues across the city.
Full details of all screenings will be available on the Bath Film Festival website from October 7. Expect an exciting line-up, including:
- BIRTH OF A NATION: A century after DW Griffiths’ epic but racist version of US history, the title is reclaimed to tell the story of the slave rebellion led by Nat Turner
- A UNITED KINGDOM: The true story of what happens when the black heir to the throne of what is now Botswana marries a white British woman
- ALONE IN BERLIN: Starring Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson as the grieving parents who start a secret and dangerous postcard campaign against the Nazis.
- THE LEVELLING: A poignant family drama shot in Somerset during last year’s disastrous floods and starring Ellie Kendrick from Game and Thrones.
To accompany its film programme, Bath Film Festival 2016 will have two extra attractions: A comedy celebration of Bath in celluloid being staged in collaboration with the city’s much loved Natural Theatre Company; and a visit from a Finnish duo who are revolutionising how film locations can be celebrated, FanGirlQuest.
