Fall in love with film this autumn as Film Hub Wales announces an irresistible Wales-wide season of events.
Film Hub Wales invites audiences across Wales to rekindle their passion for film, as the Film Audience Network launches BFI LOVE in partnership with Plusnet. A season of films to fall in love with, films to break your heart.
As part of the UK-wide BFI LOVE season between October and December 2015, venues will be bringing an alluring selection of 85 screenings and events to audiences right across Wales, from The Magic Lantern in Tywyn, to Castell Coch in Cardiff.
Audiences will be taken on an emotional journey, experiencing the heartbreak and longing of epic love stories like Brief Encounter (1945), charming and light-hearted romantic comedies such as Amelie (2001) and the darkest tales of obsession, betrayal and danger including Fatal Attraction (1987).
From today, the full listing of confirmed Film Hub Wales BFI LOVE events can be found at www.filmhubwales.org/whatson
Strategic Manager for Film Hub Wales, Hana Lewis, commented: “Audiences have many chances to discover their love for film this autumn at some of the exceptional independent cinemas Wales has to offer. With an array of exciting events arranged, from an immersive multi-media production of Brief Encounter at The Torch, to touring LGBTQI ‘Love Bites’ shorts from Iris Prize, there’s plenty to choose from. Our Film Hub Wales members make BFI blockbusters creative, exciting seasons to look out for. With Chapter as our Hub lead organisation in Wales, we have an unmissable season ahead.”
Heather Stewart, Creative Director, BFI said: ‘‘Film can bring love to life more powerfully than any other art form - it is cinema's most seductive illusion and has transformed the way we see ourselves, and our love lives. Our season is not about sex. We’re getting back to LOVE: embracing the intimacy of the close-up and the anticipation of the much longed-for screen kiss: the very language of cinema itself.”
