Keswick Film Festival – 27th February to 1st March 2020
Alhambra Cinema, Theatre by the Lake and Rheged
Featuring Golden Globe winners and BAFTA nominees, 3 of Sight and Sound Magazine’s top 5 films of 2019, plus a host of films yet to be screened, we believe we have movies to suit all tastes at Keswick Film Festival.
From the Saturday morning family film – the joyous The Personal History of David Copperfield to the brilliant South Korean drama Parasite, the range of films is as broad as the imagination of the Directors who created them.
Subtle relationship dramas such as Hope Gap (Bill Nighy and Annette Bening) , Blackbird (Susan Sarandon and Kate Winslet) and The Souvenir (Tilda Swinton) feature throughout the programme. The brilliant Chinese film, So Long, My Son comes highly recommended and is bound to feature highly in the audience awards and Portrait of a Lady on Fire is likely the fill the Alhambra to capacity.
Then there is Ken Russell’s Dance of the Seven Veils. It was screened once in 1970, by the BBC and then banned. In an evening hosted by Elize Russell, the Seven Veils will be followed by some other little known gems from Ken Russell.
Add in the usual sprinkling of documentaries – The Kingmaker and For Sama foremost amongst them – and it should mean that KFF 2020 will stay long in the memory.
