22 Dec Winchcombe Film Society
Winchcombe Film Society
New members are now being welcomed to Winchcombe Film Society. The Society meets on the last Friday of every month except July and August, at Abbey Fields Community Centre, Back Lane, Winchcombe GL54 5QH showing a wide range of popular and independent films.
Membership costs just £20 for the full year with nothing more to pay. For full details and an illustrated copy of the programme, contact chairman Colin Davison at firstname.lastname@example.org
Free tea or coffee is served from 7pm with films, generally lasting no more than two hours, screened from 7.30. There are sub-titles for the hard-of-hearing.
New members are welcome. Subscriptions can be paid on the night, or in advance to treasurer Sue Hilton, 12 Harveys Lane, Winchcombe GL54 5QT.
The first screening of 2019 will be unusually on a Thursday, 3rd January, of Lion, a heart-rending tale of a boy lost and found in India and Australia.
Other highlights include Loving Vincent, a technically startling film made from 65,000 original oil canvases, produced by 125 painters in 20 countries, including many scenes familiar from the artist’s pictures, which explores the last days of painter Vincent van Gogh.
Hit titles include Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, Hidden figures about female black mathematicians involved in the NASA space programme, the Coen brothers classic Fargo and the Oscar Best Picture award-winner Moonlight.
The society aims to show also the best of independent and foreign films, which in 2019 will include Julieta by acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar, The Light between Oceans about a childless couple deciding what to do about a rescued baby, and Land of Mine – a truly spine-tingling story of German WW2 prisoners forced to clear mines by hand.
