Everybody loves Casablanca. Most of us can probably recite the dialogue, offer a passable imitation of Humphrey Bogart or hum along with Ingrid Bergman as Sam is requested to play ‘As Time Goes By’. When the film was made in wartime California, nobody knew if it would even be successful. Nobody could have dreamt that it would become a timeless classic.

FrightFest Glasgow 2015

Casablanca screens as part of our salute to Ingrid Bergman this year and proves a movie business maxim that you never know when the magic will happen. James Stewart used to say that when script, performance and direction fall into alignment what you give audiences are little pieces of time; precious moments that people remember all their lives, cherishing and revisiting them like well-thumbed pages in a family album.

Behind the Scenes

9

WELCOME Glasgow Film Festival’s 2015 family album is full of precious moments. There are films that will take your imagination to infinity and beyond, make you gasp in astonishment, purr with pleasure or think again about the world we inhabit and the way we live now. We try not to be preachy or pretentious about what movies can be. We champion the delightful eccentricity of a Bruno Dumont epic with the same enthusiasm that we draw your attention to the grisly genre delights in FrightFest. We invite you to join us not only at the cinema but also at iconic buildings across the city that provide an extra special atmosphere for a sashay on the dance floor, a work-out for the little grey cells or a spin around the disco.

OPENING GALA: While We’re Young

GFT | WED 18 FEB (DOORS 19.00, FILM 20.00) GFT | THU 19 FEB (13.00 & 15.30) standard ticket prices Growing older, feeling younger has rarely seemed as bittersweet as it does in the latest cautionary comedy from Frances Ha director Noah Baumbach. There are moments here to make everyone squirm with recognition and rock with laughter as Baumbach mines wry comic gold from an unexpected meeting of the generations. Filmmaker Josh (Ben Stiller) has reached the age when his eyesight is failing, his memory is unreliable and his marriage to Cornelia (Naomi Watts) is settled and comfy. He just doesn’t have the spark or ambition he once possessed. Everything changes when Josh meets aspiring filmmaker Jamie (Adam Driver) and his wife Darby (Amanda Seyfried). Josh is flattered by their attention and attracted by the energy and idealism of a young couple who soon become close friends. It is a second chance to be young at heart and one that Josh and Cornelia grab with more enthusiasm than prudence. The breezy comic tone deepens and darkens into something more profound in this smartly observed portrait of a loving couple and what it takes to make them count their blessings. The entire ensemble cast shine with Naomi Watts revealing a delightful talent for physical comedy and Ben Stiller giving one of his most appealing performances. UK Premiere

CLOSING GALA: Force Majeure

GFT | SUN 1 MAR (DOORS 19.30, FILM 20.00) One single moment can change everything in a relationship and that’s exactly what happens in Force Majeure, a brilliant, Cannes prize-winner destined to leave you debating long after the final credits. A happy family are on a skiing vacation in the French Alps. An ordinary lunch becomes a moment fraught with terror as an avalanche heads inexorably towards their mountaintop restaurant. Tomas (Johannes Bah Kuhnke) grabs his mobile and runs, leaving his wife Ebba (Lisa Loven Kongsli) and their children to fend for themselves. His instinct for self-preservation is the spark for a scalpel-sharp examination of love, guilt and devotion that may be even more destructive than the avalanche. Writer/director Ruben Östlund has found an ingenious way to explore the flaws and cracks in a marriage by creating the circumstances in which everything we take for granted is torn away. We think we know where our sympathies lie, but the film has surprises in store; confrontations and confessions that probe further into the nature of this union. Is there just an unbridgeable gap between the way men and women view the world? Told you it would get you talking. Prepare to battle for the moral high ground with one of the year’s most audacious and gripping films. UK Premiere

STREWTH! THE FILMS OF OZ

HERE’S LOOKING AT YOU, KID

What have the Australians ever done for us? Apart from giving us worldbeating, visionary filmmakers like Baz Luhrmann and Peter Weir, Oscarwinning superstars from Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett to Russell Crowe and Peter Finch, and a collection of unforgettable movie classics that range from Picnic at Hanging Rock to the Mad Max trilogy, Shine and Ten Canoes? This year’s country focus is devoted to the very best of Australian cinema, introducing audiences to the brightest new talents and revisiting some all-time classics. It’s not just the sequins in Strictly Ballroom that sparkle; discover Sophie Hyde’s Sundance prize-winner 52 Tuesdays, Lynette Wallworth’s wonderfully uplifting exploration of bereavement in Tender, and a collection of films that range from raucous comedy to heart-piercing drama. Grab a unique chance to go walkabout in the far corners of Australian cinema.

Ingrid Bergman (1915–1982) holds a unique place in the affections of cinemagoers. No other Golden Age star matched such Hollywood success with an equally impressive contribution to world cinema. Cherished for her role as Ilsa in the peerless Casablanca, Bergman received seven Academy Award nominations during her forty-year film career, winning Oscars for Gaslight, Anastasia and Murder on the Orient Express. Bergman could play saints and sinners with equal conviction, investing her characters with a radiant and compelling sincerity that helped to create a string of enduring classics. Glasgow Film Festival is proud to salute this extraordinary star in the year that marks the centenary of her birth.

CINEMA CITY

PIONEER

Glasgow’s love affair with the movies spans generations: in the 1930s, Glasgow had more cinemas per head of population than anywhere else in the world; in the 21st century it has become a place where Oscar-winners like Brad Pitt and Halle Berry come to make movie magic. Cinema City is the culmination of a four-year local history project run by Glasgow Film and celebrates all aspects of cinema-going in the city, with screenings of classic Glasgow-set films like Gillies MacKinnon’s Small Faces, the world premiere of a documentary on one of Glasgow’s favourite writers William McIlvanney, walking tours, free talks and, of course, a ceilidh. The strand’s centrepiece is Jeely Jars and Seeing Stars, a brand new exhibition running at the Mitchell Library from February 12–28 bringing together memorabilia, archive footage and oral histories supplied by film lovers aged from 19 to 92. Memories are made of this.

Choose brand new films. Choose fresh new talents. Choose cutting-edge work. Choose exciting first and second features from around the globe. Choose work full of promise and wonder that delights the senses and lifts the spirits. Choose a feast of curated gems. Choose to glow with the excitement of discovery at the end of it all, wishing the film you saw could start all over again. Choose to spread the word about the magic you have seen. Choose the future of cinema and watch the first steps of filmmakers who are destined to leave their mark on the world. Choose our Pioneer strand for the sheer joy of talent-spotting, and the kudos of being able to say you knew their early stuff. The greatest names in movie history had to begin somewhere. Open your eyes and dream.

CINEMASTERS

MODERN FAMILIES

World class talents at the very top of their game. CineMasters is where you will find international directors of rare vision and insight whose careers have been showered with glittering prizes. These are the filmmakers whose latest projects are keenly anticipated and whose track records have made them essential parts of the cinematic landscape. These films will be among the most significant of the year. Our 2015 collection ranges from Roy Andersson’s Venice Golden Lion winner A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence, Lav Diaz’s extraordinary Locarno Golden Leopard winner From What Is Before and Xavier Dolan’s stunningly emotional Cannes prize-winner Mommy to GFF favourite Franҫois Ozon’s The New Girlfriend, Ann Hui’s lustrous biographical epic The Golden Era and Zhang Yimou’s Coming Home. This is the very cream of the crop; hand-crafted works that will take you to the far shores of the human imagination.

Give us a child at an impressionable age and we’ll make them an avid cinemagoer for life. Wasn’t that what Miss Jean Brodie promised, more or less? Children love movies, it seems to be part of their DNA. Give them a glimpse of Paddington, the treat of a Disney animated classic or a first chance to follow the yellow brick road and they are completely captivated. The festival has always been a treasure trove for adult audiences, now Modern Families has been purpose built to provide a selection of child-friendly delights and firm family favourites. With big screen experiences featuring beloved characters like the Moomins and chances to see top family films before everyone else, this is the place to find something for the youngest film lover in your household.

GALA

SPECIAL EVENTS

Every film at Glasgow Film Festival is special but there are some films that are just that wee bit more special than the others. The Galas are films that deserve the red carpet, razzle dazzle treatment. This is where you will discover Julianne Moore giving an Oscar-worthy performance in the touching Still Alice. This is where you can catch a first glimpse of X + Y, a complete charmer that is set to be one of the top British films of 2015. The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart proves to be just as gifted behind the camera as he is in front of it with Rosewater, and nobody can warm the cockles of the heart with such effortless aplomb as Dustin Hoffman in Boychoir. Starry, starry nights full of grand masters, rising talents and extraordinary films that are destined to become your new favourites. What titles can we add to your must-see list? 14

Watch as the familiar is transformed into the extraordinary with our Special Events and explore corners of the city you never knew existed with screenings staged in unique venues. Plunge into the deepest darkest depths of the unknown with Sunken Ripples at the IMAX, make moon eyes at your beau during Love Is All: 100 Years of Love & Courtship in the beautiful surroundings of Mackintosh Queen’s Cross, and stifle your scream as the same church becomes the chilling setting for Australian thriller Wake in Fright. Fancy yourself as a bit of a detective? Then wax your Poirot moustache for Murder on the Orient Express at Trades Hall; a live action murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. And those without a ‘tache should don their most sequined finery and cha-cha slide into the grand ballroom of Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum for Strictly Ballroom at Kelvin-Groove!

NERDVANA

SOUND & VISION

Back in 2011 we unleashed our inner-geek with Kapow!, a strand celebrating the ever-expanding world of comic books and their role in the film industry. In 2013 Game Cats Go Miaow brought video game culture crashing into the cinema with irresistible style. Now in 2015 we proudly present Nerdvana, where the alternative rules, cult filmmaking is king and the geeks are firmly in control. With passionate gamer and cult comedy writer Rab Florence as our fearless ambassador, we bring you the cream of the nerdy crop, including the untold story of Jodorowsky’s Dune, the funniest game of Dungeons & Dragons you’ll ever see, and quite literally the biggest gaming experience in Glasgow’s history - Rab’s Video Game Empty at the freaking IMAX! It all culminates in a day-long Drygate takeover, with special screenings, customised menus, and popup events that epitomise the ethics of fun. Nerdvana: Best. Strand. Ever.

Glasgow Film Festival presents the very best of sonic cinema, documentaries and features from around the world, along with live performances that showcase the most exciting blend of music and moviegoing. This year we are delighted to reclaim Glasgow’s ABC venue, transforming the former picture-house back into an alternative home of film and live music for our A Night at the Regal extravaganza. We also welcome silent film experts Neil Brand and Paul Merton for their Buster Keaton Night celebrating the silent comedy icon. Our film programme features Mia Hansen-Løve’s exploration of 90s French electronica in Eden, a documentary endearingly exploring the long-suffering life of Leeds punk band The Mekons in Revenge of The Mekons, and the evocative portrait of a Memphis musician struggling with his art in Memphis.

BEST OF BRITISH

WINDOW ON THE WORLD

Remember the first time you experienced Billy Casper taking flight in Ken Loach’s Kes? Or Iggy Pop’s electrifying drumroll delivery in the opening reel of Trainspotting? How about Laura Jesson and Alec Harvey sharing a cup of tea in Brief Encounter? World-class film is at the heart of Britain, and here at Glasgow Film Festival we celebrate it in its many and varied forms. Homegrown talent – from big-budget masterpieces to unsung heroes making micro-miracles on micro-budgets – is the focus here, where old masters rub shoulders with new voices in a celebration of all things us. Catch Alan Rickman’s sophomore directorial offering A Little Chaos, Daniel Wolfe’s invigorating Catch Me Daddy, Carol Morley’s masterful follow-up to Dreams of a Life, The Falling, and Tom Green’s Monsters: Dark Continent, the sequel to Gareth Edwards’ cult sci-fi hit. Take your seats, break out the rich teas and get comfy.

A trip to the movies can be a trip to the moon, a journey into the wild or the invitation to an encounter at the end of the world. The movies take us to corners of the planet we could never imagine visiting and make the great cities of the globe seem as familiar as the streets we walk along every day. Who doesn’t think of Woody Allen on a visit to New York or remember Amélie when strolling through the sacred heart of Paris? Window on the World provides a showcase for some of the most distinctive films from around the globe. There are incredible journeys in store, flights of fancy and voyages of discovery that will take you from a bittersweet road movie through the majestic beauty of Iceland, to a journey far from the straight and narrow in a Japan where the appearance of propriety is everything. No passport or inoculations required; all you need is a ticket.

STRANGER THAN FICTION

FRIGHTFEST GLASGOW 2015

We are in awe of the world around us. We yearn for films that tell of unbelievable obstacles and how they are overcome; of surprising stories that stun us and stay with us; and of unimaginable journeys that ignite our sense of adventure. Stranger Than Fiction is filled with world-class documentaries that transform real lives and true events into innovative cinematic experiences. John Grierson once described documentary as ‘the creative treatment of actuality’. The definition of what makes a film a documentary has been constantly changing as directors challenge the boundaries of the genre and push our expectations to a higher level. These films will educate and entertain, provoke and inspire, and linger in the memory long after the lights have come up. Welcome to the real world.

FrightFest continues to grow as the leading UK shocktacular and its honoured place in Glasgow Film Festival has been an instrumental part of that ever-increasing success story. So what else can its creators do but finesse the fear and heighten the horror for their beloved Scottish fans, presenting a totally brand new line-up of must-sees to instill awe-inspiring terror? Prepare for the best of the genre to provoke your worst nightmares, from the dreadheads who care about your scares and put the gleam in your screams.

Festival for a Fiver

Ingrid Bergman’s final film contains one of her greatest performances. Working with Ingmar Bergman for the only time in her career, Ingrid plays Charlotte, a world-famous concert pianist making a rare visit to her daughter Eva (Liv Ullmann). The reunion soon descends into a dark night of soul-searching as Eva accuses her mother of heartless neglect and the selfish pursuit of personal happiness. Bitter resentment challenges Charlotte to confront the guilt of a lifetime in a searing, beautifully acted drama with an intensely personal resonance for Bergman who received a seventh and final Oscar nomination for her heartbreaking performance.

Backmask GFT | Fri 27 Feb (23.15) From Marcus Nispel, director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th remakes: sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll possession. Six teens throw a party in a rundown building and find a vintage record. Talk turns to ‘backmasking’ – subliminal messages recorded onto a music groove heard only when the track is played backwards – and they play the vinyl for a giggle. Soon, a seemingly malevolent entity infiltrates the group, wreaking havoc. However, the spirit is actually trying to convey a message and the real source of horror is something, or someone, much closer to home. FrightFest Director Marcus Nispel Cast Stephen Lang, Brett Dier, Brittany Curran USA 2015, 1h30m, 18 Thanks to StudioCanal

Former teacher Ingrid (Ellen Dorrit Petersen) has recently lost her sight. She rarely leaves her apartment and even the simplest task has become an adventure. She has lost none of her wit or imagination and spends her days writing fictional flights of fancy reflecting her repressed desires, her anxieties, the lives of her neighbours and even her husband. The increasingly blurred lines between fact and fiction spark wry reflections on creativity as a means of escape, catharsis and seeing the world more clearly.

The film captures her changing appearance and growing confidence as she moves from timid schoolgirl to defiant, leather-clad gang member in a film full of brash energy, insight and a blistering soundtrack that includes Light Asylum’s ‘Dark Allies’ and an exuberant lip sync to Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’.

Writer and novelist Xiao Hong was one of the most fascinating figures to live through the upheavals of 1930s China. Long overshadowed by the attention focused on her male colleagues, she receives her full due in this sweeping, authoritative biographical epic. Xiao Hong (Tang Wei) is just twenty when she flees her abusive father and the prospect of an arranged marriage. She is soon pregnant, heavily in debt and all alone in the world. Writing is her salvation as she becomes a front line witness to history and an adventurous free spirit who challenged every rule and restriction of her times.

The Grump (Mielensäpahoittaja) GFT | Thu 19 (15.15) & Fri 20 Feb (13.30) If you loved The One Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window, you will relish the adventures of another elderly rascal. The Grump (Antti Litja) is a stubborn, sour-faced curmudgeon happily attached to a rosy-eyed vision of the past. Incapacitated by a fall, the old devil moves from the family farm to the city home of his exasperated daughter-in-law. Every conversation is a battlefield, any newfangled invention defeats him. Then it starts to become apparent that the old fellow could still teach the modern world a few tricks and the film moves from a playful, chalk and cheese comedy into something much more poignant. Window on the World Director Dome Karukoski Cast Antti Litja, Petra Frey, Mari Perankoski Finland 2014, 1h44m, Finnish/Russian/English with subtitles , N/C 12+ Thanks to The Yellow Affair

The Hoarder GFT | Fri 27 Feb (16.00) When Ella (The O.C. star Mischa Barton) discovers her Wall Street banker boyfriend is renting a secret storage unit, she suspects he’s using it to hide an affair. Enlisting the help of her best friend Molly (The Inbetweeners’ Emily Atack) she breaks into the facility, only to discover something more terrifying instead. Trapped in a darkened building with a group of neurotic strangers who start disappearing one by one, Ella soon uncovers even worse horror in the dank depths. Her life or death battle to escape eternal enslavement is about to begin… and so are your nastiest nightmares. FrightFest Director Matt Winn Cast Mischa Barton, Robert Knepper, Charlotte Salt UK 2015, 1h24m, N/C 18+ Thanks to Sunny Day Media

I Can Quit Whenever I Want (Smetto quando voglio) CCA | Thu 26 Feb (18.15) / GFT | Fri 27 Feb (15.30) Breaking Bad Italian-style, as a group of unemployed academics decide to reinvent themselves as cutting-edge drug dealers. When neurobiologist Pietro (Edoardo Leo) loses his research funding, he recruits some of his fellow professors to create barely legal highs from ingredients that have yet to be banned. Italy’s biggest comedy hit of the past year is a smartly written classical farce laced with a bittersweet topicality reflecting the struggles of a generation driven to desperate acts in the age of crippling economic recession. A highly promising first feature from Sydney Sibilia. Pioneer Director Sydney Sibilia Cast Edoardo Leo, Valeria Solarino, Stefano Fresi Italy 2014, 1h40m, Italian with subtitles, N/C 15+ Thanks to Fandango

I Know Where I’m Going: Shooting in Scotland CCA | Tue 24 Feb (18.30)

What do World War Z, Cloud Atlas, Prometheus and Skyfall have in common? They all include scenes filmed in Scotland. The country’s popularity with filmmakers shows no sign of abating. 2015 will see Scotland’s landscapes feature in such keenly anticipated films as Terence Davies’ Sunset Song, Robert Carlyle’s directorial debut The Legend of Barney Thomson and Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. What benefits does this exposure have for Scotland, and in particular for the Scottish film industry? Find out at this discussion event being held in conjunction with the Sunday Herald and BAFTA Scotland.

I Need a Dodge! Joe Strummer on the Run CCA | Fri 20 Feb (18.15) / Paisley Arts Centre | Sat 28 Feb (19.30) The Clash frontman Joe Strummer was a leading figure in the punk movement of the 1970s, and arguably one of the most important and influential figures in rock and roll history. After the dissolution of the band in the 1980s, the singer-songwriter travelled the world searching for new musical influences. On a Spanish radio show in 1997 Strummer mentioned a classic Dodge that he somehow misplaced in Madrid. Through interviews with Strummer’s close friends and members of 091, Radio Futura and The Clash, director Nick Hall investigates what Strummer was doing in Spain at the time, and what happened to his Dodge. Sound & Vision Director Nick Hall Spain/UK 2014, 1h7m, English/Spanish with subtitles, N/C 15+ Thanks to Music Film Network

Ingrid Bergman as a Feminist Icon CCA | Thu 19 Feb (17.00)

Free event

In this talk journalist and film critic Ulrika Knutson celebrates Ingrid Bergman as a pioneering feminist who battled the Hollywood studio system, cherished her independence and refused to accept any limitations placed upon her as a performer or a woman. Celebrated for her natural beauty and the lack of artifice in her acting, Bergman made bold choices in her roles and her directors. When news of her adulterous affair with Roberto Rossellini became public knowledge, she was hounded into exile and attacked on the floor of the American senate. She would later return to Hollywood in triumph and remains an inspirational figure as a successful independent woman who lived by her own rules. Here’s Looking at You, Kid 1h Thanks to the Embassy of Sweden Free tickets available on the day at CCA. Max 2 per person.

It Follows Grosvenor | Fri 20 Feb (20.30) / GFT | Sat 21 Feb (23.15) David Robert Mitchell makes a smart move into the territory of John Carpenter and David Cronenberg with a teen horror film in which the threat comes from a sexually transmitted phantom plague. It manifests itself as decaying, drooling apparitions that only the infected victim can see, and the only chance of survival is to pass it on to another sexual partner. Nineteen-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe) is the latest victim faced with impossible choices as she figures out how to stay alive and fight back. A horror film where the brains are in the screenplay rather than splattered all over the screen. Pioneer Director David Robert Mitchell Cast Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto USA 2014, 1h47m, 15 Thanks to Icon Film Distribution

Jauja GFT | Thu 26 (18.20) & Fri 27 Feb (13.00) There are echoes of The Searchers and Apocalypse Now in this epic journey into obsession starring co-producer Viggo Mortensen. Danish engineer Dinesen (Mortensen) is stationed with the Argentine army in a remote corner of Patagonia in the 1880s. When his teenage daughter elopes with a young soldier, Dinesen vows to track them down. His quest leads deeper into a dangerous, unsettling wilderness where time becomes irrelevant and any notions of a paradise on earth remain just out of reach. Painterly and poetic, this haunting existential western was voted one of the ten best films of 2014 in the Sight & Sound critics’ poll. Window on the World Director Lisandro Alonso Cast Viggo Mortensen, Viilbjørk Mallin Agger, Ghita Nørby Argentina/USA/Netherlands 2014, 1h48m, Danish/Spanish with subtitles, N/C 15+ Thanks to Soda Pictures

Jodorowsky’s Dune GFT | Fri 20 Feb (16.00) / Grosvenor | Sat 21 Feb (15.00) One of the great lost projects in cinematic history, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s distinctive vision of Frank Herbert’s epic novel Dune proved too pricey for the American Studios’ wallets - they backed out just before filming was scheduled to begin. The film’s legacy, however, lives on, with Frank Pavich’s incredible documentary unearthing Jodorowsky’s plan for his sci-fi opus, featuring Pink Floyd, Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, H R Giger and Salvador Dali as an intergalactic space baron. On the 2015 Oscars shortlist for best documentary feature, Jodorowsky’s Dune is a fascinating journey into the heart of a true visionary. Nerdvana Director Frank Pavich Cast Alejandro Jodorowsky, Nicolas Winding Refn, H R Giger USA/France 2014, 1h28m, English/French/German/Spanish with subtitles, N/C 12+ Thanks to Disney

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters + Arcade Games Drygate | Sat 28 Feb (Doors & Gaming 16.00, Film 16.30, More Gaming 18.00)

Festival for a Fiver

When the highest ever Donkey Kong score was smashed by restaurant owner and and self-proclaimed ‘Sauce King of Florida’, hot sauce mogul Billy Mitchell in 1982, no gamers could come close to beating him. However, nearly twenty five years later, science teacher and family man Steve Wiebe demolished Mitchell’s record by over 130,000 points. And so begins a documentary so brilliant and bizarre it should have been created by Christopher Guest. We’ll be providing a host of retro arcade machines and Drygate will be tailoring a menu just for the screening, so don’t forget to bring some change! Nerdvana Director Seth Gordon Cast Steve Wiebe, Billy Mitchell, Mark Alpiger USA 2007, 1h19m, PG Thanks to Filmbank

Land Ho! Grosvenor | Tue 24 Feb (20.30) / GFT | Wed 25 Feb (15.30) Fans of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel will love this bittersweet road movie in which two old friends attempt to get their groove back with a jaunt to Iceland. Boisterous, big-hearted Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson) decides that the best way to cheer up his former brother-in-law Colin (Paul Eenhoorn) is to book them a trip to the land of hot springs and cool happenings. Who cares if they are the oldest swingers in town? Beautiful location photography and irresistible performances are just two of the attractions in this raunchy but warm-hearted celebration of growing old disgracefully. Window on the World Directors Martha Stephens, Aaron Katz Cast Paul Eenhoorn, Earl Lynn Nelson, Daníel Gylfason USA/Iceland 2014, 1h36m, N/C 15+ Thanks to Sony Pictures Releasing International

Letters to Max CCA | Fri 27 Feb (20.30) When filmmaker Eric Baudelaire posted a letter to Maxim Gvinjia, Abkhazia’s former Minister of Foreign Affairs, he expected it to be returned ‘destination unknown’. To his surprise, he received a phone call from Max. So begins a conversation between them, chronicling the contested state of Abkhazia, which seceded from Georgia during the 1992–93 civil war, and whose independence is recognised by few countries. Among recent questions of self-determined statehood, Letters to Max is a timely meditation on a country’s physical and legal space, and how new nations might be imagined into existence. The screening will be introduced by LUX Scotland’s Isla Leaver-Yap. Crossing the Line Director Eric Baudelaire Cast Nancy Holt, Dennis Wheeler, Maxim Gvinjia France 2014, 1h43m, English/Russian/Abkhazian/French with subtitles, N/C 12+ Thanks to Electronic Arts Intermix & LUX Scotland

Life in a Fishbowl (Vonarstræti)

AUDIENCE AWARD

GFT | Tue 24 (20.15) & Wed 25 Feb (11.00) Iceland’s financial collapse had profound economic and moral repercussions that touched every life in the country.

Li’l Quinquin (P’tit Quinquin) GFT | Tue 24 (13.30) & Wed 25 Feb (13.45) Think of a cross between Twin Peaks and The League of Gentlemen set in the Opal Coast of Normandy and directed by Bruno Dumont. It sounds like a nightmare but Li’l Quinquin is a complete hoot – a genuinely hilarious, oddball murder mystery with a wonderfully eccentric, sharply comic touch. The mystery begins with the discovery of a dead cow that is found to contain human remains. A completely clueless detective and his sidekick arrive to investigate the first of several murders that reflect the underlying racism and xenophobia in this small seaside community. Originally a mini-series and now showing as one fantastic, self-contained film.

Limited Partnership CCA | Fri 27 (15.45) & Sat 28 Feb (18.15) Limited Partnership packs a huge emotional punch as it charts a forty-year love affair that was inextricably linked with the struggle for gay rights in America. American citizen Richard Adams and Sydney-born Tony Sullivan met in 1971. In 1975, they were married in Colorado, the first state to issue a same sex marriage licence. When Richard applied for a green card for his spouse, it was denied on the official grounds that ‘you have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots’. Contemporary interviews, newsreel footage and home movies cover the long fight for equality and an inspirational, unbreakable romance.

He commissions architect André Le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts) to design lavish gardens for the Palace of Versailles. Sabine de Barra (Kate Winslet), a mere woman, is the surprise choice to make the plans a reality as she steps into a court full of intrigue, backstabbing and many who would love to see her fail. A witty, biting historical comedy with deliciously funny performances from Rickman and Stanley Tucci. Macaron anyone?

Actor turned director Josh Lawson’s controversial first feature lifts the lid on the hidden desires that flourish behind the white picket fence of respectable suburban Sydney. One couple’s recourse to role playing gets way out of hand. One woman can only achieve orgasm when her distressed partner weeps. One wife yearns for her husband to make her rape fantasy a reality. Even the latest addition to the neighbourhood has his own little secrets. Breaking taboos and crossing the line of acceptability, The Little Death is a bold, hilarious debut feature that really hits the spot. Strewth!

It refers to things and phenomena that operate beyond the realm of the regular human senses of vision, hearing, touch, taste and smell. Extra-sensory knowledge is produced and received not through the ordinary faculties but via the mind in an expanded state of consciousness and in communication with a highly receptive and sensual body. The film shows one group’s journey as they attempt to reclaim their extra-senses, asking what if we learn to exercise them beyond a personal context, in a larger social and political reality as well?

Starring Matthew Goode and Danny Huston, the film is reminiscent of existential no-escape thrillers like Solaris, 127 Hours or Apollo 13. A taut and propulsive piece of filmmaking that pits man against man, as each minute inches them closer to their fate at the hands of the ocean’s terrifying expanse.

In the autumn of 2013, sixty Syrian refugee women who fled to Jordan came together to create and perform their own version of the Greek tragedy The Trojan Women. None of them had acted before. Fedda follows seven weeks of rehearsals as the women begin to feel that the play could have been inspired by their own lives and experiences of being uprooted, enslaved and bereaved by conflict.

Leonard (Johnson) and Maria (Gemma Jones) have spent forty years in a remote Cumbrian cottage but it has now become a prison, crammed with the junk of a lifetime and overrun with mice. Their middle-aged son Daniel (Daniel Cerqueira) arrives from London to take control but Leonard is not about to go gently and as old family habits reassert themselves, the film develops into a poignant portrait of family life, tinged with black comedy and heartbreak.

Expanding on the mythos from all three predecessors, this latest instalment picks up the intense action immediately after [REC] 2.

There, in the bowels of the dark and desolate ship, Dr Ricarte is experimenting with the infectious virus to find a cure before another outbreak occurs.

Red Amnesia (Chuang ru zhe) GFT | Tue 24 (13.10) & Thu 26 Feb (18.30) Red Amnesia is a film that seems designed to catch you off guard. What begins as a benign portrait of a widow and her family gradually deepens to reflect the communal guilt that lingers from China’s Cultural Revolution. Deng (Zhong Lü) takes an active part in the lives of her grown sons and also cares for her elderly mother. She seems unremarkable until a stone is thrown through her window, the phone rings and nobody is there, and a young boy arrives. It appears that hidden events in her past have returned for a moment of reckoning in a brave, mysterious film in the tradition of Michael Haneke’s Hidden.

Red Army GFT | Thu 19 Feb (13.30) / CCA | Sat 21 Feb (15.45) The Cold War wasn’t just fought on borders and in diplomatic skirmishes. Sport provided a gladiatorial arena in which ideology was as important as athleticism. Gabe Polsky’s hugely appealing documentary tells the story of Slava Fetisov, a legendary Russian ice hockey player who became a key figure in the intense rivalry between Soviet Russia, USA and Canada. Fetisov paved the way for huge changes in the game, as communism gave way to capitalism and lucrative NHL contracts attracted ‘Red Army’ stalwarts to a new country and a new approach to their sport.

Revenge of The Mekons CCA | Thu 26 (20.45) & Fri 27 Feb (13.30) One of the most provocative and innovative bands of the punk rock generation, The Mekons started in Leeds in 1977 as a group of art students who could barely play their instruments and – despite a career consigned to the margins – have somehow managed to keep touring and making albums today. As the members of the band moved on, got day jobs and even relocated to other continents, they have continued to produce more adventurous and challenging albums. Revenge of The Mekons is the remarkable, inspiring and heartwarming account of a criminally under-recognised group of lively musicians and artists held with cult-like adoration by fans and critics.

Free entry

Ingrid Bergman achieved the highest heights of Hollywood fame but also experienced scandal, rejection and notoriety. In her early film career she was lauded for her natural beauty, radiance and versatility, although audiences seemed to prefer her in saintly mode. Her scandalous love affair with Roberto Rossellini virtually ended her Hollywood career but was something she pursued without regard to her reputation or professional standing. This exhibition of photographs includes stunning images from the forty year span of Bergman’s film career. Here’s Looking at You, Kid Thanks to the Embassy of Sweden

Rosewater GFT | Sun 22 Feb (20.30) / Grosvenor | Mon 23 Feb (15.00) Jon Stewart makes an impressive directorial debut with a political drama inspired by events in which The Daily Show played a critical role. In June 2009, Iranian Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal) was covering Iran’s election. He was arrested by the Revolutionary Guard on a charge of treason and held in Evin prison. It becomes the mission of Javadi (Kim Bodnia) to break his spirit and obtain a confession that he is a spy. Stewart salutes his struggle for survival and the importance of the freedom of the press in a film with the edge of a Costa-Gavras classic and a captivating central performance from Gael García Bernal.

The Salt of the Earth (Le sel de la terre) GFT | Sun 22 (20.45) & Mon 23 Feb (10.45) Hauntingly beautiful images are matched with illuminating testimony to create an utterly captivating tribute to the extraordinary life of photographer and environmentalist Sebastião Salgado. Breathtaking photos of the Brazilian gold mines in the 1970s, the famine in Ethiopia and the genocide of Rwanda confirm Salgado’s ability to capture the humanity of a moment as he bore witness to history. Salgado’s memories of a specific shot or particular time are invaluable, as is our understanding of what led him to spearhead the rebuilding of an entire eco-system in Brazil.

Heading into the woods, he encounters a man carrying a katana Samurai sword and wearing a pretty white dress. He has such big, wild eyes - all the better to see into Jakob’s heart and uncover his true desires.

Shooting on a Shoestring CCA | Wed 25 Feb (18.30)

Free event

Financing a film is a continuous battle for filmmakers, whether first-timers or industry veterans. Financial constraints force resourceful producers and directors to think creatively and have inspired some incredible works of art. We discuss the process of low budget filmmaking with filmmakers such as Tom Browne, whose Radiator (screening at GFF15) was primarily filmed in his parents’ old house. A host of fellow talents help prove that it’s not the size of your budget that matters but what you do with it that counts. Behind the Scenes UK 2015, 1h, N/C 15+ Free tickets available on the day at CCA. Max 2 per person.

Short Skin CCA | Thu 19 (18.00) & Fri 20 Feb (16.00) Adolescence can be difficult enough without believing that you are different from everyone else. Sensitive seventeen year-old Edoardo (a delightful Matteo Creatini) is more than ready to experience life, love and sex but he has suffered from phimosis since childhood. An extremely tight foreskin has made sex impossible and is threatening to turn him into a nervous wreck. A bawdy streak of American Pie-style humour runs through Duccio Chiarini’s first feature (watch out for the scene with the octopus) but the film ultimately has more in common with Gregory’s Girl, as its gawky, endearing hero tries to negotiate the mysteries of girls, growing pains and male insecurity.

Small Faces GFT | Sun 1 Mar (14.10) Gillies MacKinnon’s award-winning autobiographical remembrance of growing up in 1960s Glasgow is one of the most vivid coming of age films that Scotland has ever produced. Written by Gillies and his brother Billy, it focuses on feisty teenager Lex (Iain Robertson) as he finds himself torn between the very different role models of his art student brother Alan (Joe McFadden) and his hardman brother Bobby (Steven Duffy). Involvement in the city’s gang culture seems inevitable, especially when Lex falls foul of ‘mental’ Malky (Kevin McKidd). We hope to welcome members of the cast and crew to this special 20th anniversary screening.

Ingrid Bergman’s first collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock received six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. It is a playful thriller in which the master of suspense puts his stamp on psychoanalysis.

Dr Constance Petersen (Bergman) soon uncovers that he is an imposter and suffering from chronic amnesia. So, what happened to the real Dr Edwardes? The answer is locked within a fragile mind.

Still Alice GFT | Sat 21 Feb (21.00) | Sun 22 Feb (15.00) Julianne Moore caps an amazing year (Maps to the Stars, Mockingjay Part 1) with a magnificent, Golden Globe-winning performance as Alice Howland, a renowned linguistics professor diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s. The temptation to turn her decline into a shameless weepie is staunchly resisted in a film all the more heartbreaking for its honesty and restraint. Moore offers a powerful sense of a woman in retreat from the world as all the memories and feelings that made her unique become lost to her. Husband Alec Baldwin and daughters Kristen Stewart and Kate Bosworth provide strong support in a poignant adaptation of the Lisa Genova novel.

Over the course of the set, Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join Byrne onstage. They change instruments and clothes. More performers emerge. Byrne wears a big suit.

Granik’s first documentary follows Hall though his modest life in an understated and touching snapshot of Americana, avoiding stereotypes, clichés and sentimentality whilst carving a joyful study of an All-American subject who the film refuses to marginalise. Exploring elements of faith, loss and love, Granik delivers a heart-warming portrait of a man amidst his Harleys.

Bedouin boy Theeb (Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat) and his elder brother Hussein (Hussein Salameh) are largely unaware of the global conflict until British officer Edward (Jack Fox) and his Bedouin guide arrive at their camp. Hussein is assigned to accompany them and the uninvited Theeb tags along on an epic journey fraught with danger, death and derring-do. A captivating piece of storytelling offering a very different perspective on the era of T E Lawrence. Pioneer Director Naji Abu Nowar Cast Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat, Hussein Salameh, Hassan Mutlag Jordan/Qatar/United Arab Emirates/UK 2014, 1h40m, Arabic with subtitles, N/C 12+ Thanks to Rupert Lloyd, Bassel Ghandour

There Are Monsters GFT | Sat 28 Feb (23.30) Monsters are taking over the world, slowly, quietly and efficiently – but you won’t see them coming until it’s far too late! Four film students embark on a road trip to obtain promotional interviews for their college. However, en route they witness a series of odd events, strange behaviour, shocking actions and what seems to be a surplus of twins. Their well-ordered universe literally changes before their camera lenses, uncovering a terrifying secret lurking just under the surface of the calm urban landscape. You will be scared out of your wits right from the start of this instant cult classic – guaranteed! FrightFest Director Jay Dahl Cast Matthew Amyotte, Jason Daley, Michael Ray Fox Canada 2013, 1h30m, N/C 18+ Thanks to The Works Film Group

Three Hearts (3 coeurs) CCA | Tue 24 Feb (20.30) / Grosvenor | Wed 25 Feb (15.00) Three hearts rarely beat as one in this handsome, intricately plotted melodrama, played to perfection by some of France’s best actors. Tax inspector Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde) misses the last train home to Paris. Stranded in a small provincial town, he meets Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg). They chat the night away (shades of Before Sunrise) and believe they have begun a fine romance. Fate has other plans. Later, Marc meets antique dealer Sophie (Chiara Mastroianni) and love blooms. On the eve of their marriage Marc discovers what we have known all along, that Sylvie and Sophie are sisters. A civilised delight co-starring the great Catherine Deneuve. Window on the World Director Benoît Jacquot Cast Benoît Poelvoorde, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni Germany/Belgium/France 2014, 1h46m, French with subtitles, N/C 15+ Thanks to Metrodome

The Town That Dreaded Sundown GFT | Sat 21 (23.30) & Sun 22 Feb (10.45) Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s reinvention of slasher classic The Town That Dreaded Sundown is full of sly, knowing references to the 1976 original, keeping a 1970s genre vibe whilst dragging it kicking, screaming and bleeding into the 21st century. More than sixty years have passed since the Phantom Killer brought terror to the streets of Texarkana. Now, the ‘moonlight murders’ begin again. Is it a case of history repeating or imitation being the most sincere form of serial killer flattery? Lonely high school girl Jami (Addison Timlin) must uncover the truth if she is to survive the carnage. Pioneer Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Cast Addison Timlin, Gary Cole, Denis O’Hare USA 2014, 1h26m, N/C 18+ Thanks to Metrodome

The Treatment (De Behandeling) GFT | Sat 28 Feb (18.30) Based on the chiller by acclaimed British author Mo Hayder, Nordic Noir turns frighteningly Flemish in Belgium’s top-grossing film of 2014. Gut-wrenching and harrowing to an unprecedented degree, nerves of steel are required to watch this truly shocking serial killer thriller. Inspector Nick Cafmeyer is haunted by the unsolved disappearance of his younger brother. A known sex offender was questioned but quickly released, and he now takes fiendish pleasure in tormenting Nick. When a similar case involving a missing juvenile comes to light, Nick’s real nightmare begins... FrightFest Director Hans Herbots Cast Geert Van Rampelberg, Ina Geerts, Johan van Assche Belgium 2014, 2h5m, Flemish with subtitles, N/C 18+ Thanks to Peccadillo Pictures

Uzumasa Limelight (Uzumasa raimuraito) GFT | Fri 20 (20.15) & Sat 21 Feb (15.20) Inspired by the Charlie Chaplin classic Limelight, Ken Ochiai has created a wonderfully touching, nostalgic salute to all the proud artists who never made top-billing. Kamiyama (Seizô Fukumoto) has spent a lifetime as a movie extra dying in spectacular fashion by the sword of countless stars. Now that the golden age of chanbara (sword-fighting dramas) is over, his only employment is studio tours. Then, rising star Satsuki (Chihiro Yamamoto) asks to learn the dying art of dying and Kamiyama has a chance to pass on his skills. An utterly charming gem of a film with a graceful performance from the leathery Fukumoto that deserves to make him a star. Window on the World Director Ken Ochiai Cast Seizô Fukumoto, Chihiro Yamamoto, Masashi Goda Japan 2014, 1h43m, Japanese with subtitles, N/C 15+ Thanks to Eleven Arts Inc

Wake in Fright Mackintosh Queen’s Cross | Fri 27 Feb (21.00)

Festival for a Fiver

Dramatic, visually beautiful and psychologically terrifying, Wake in Fright is one of those incredible movies you just have to see. Shot in the expansive and brutal Australian outback, it charts the unnerving demise of a young schoolteacher stranded and plunging headfirst towards his own destruction with the help of forceful locals and their unconventional and violent rituals. Martin Scorsese dubbed it ‘a deeply – and I mean deeply – unsettling movie. It left me speechless’ while Nick Cave calls it ‘the best and most terrifying film about Australia’, and we would agree. Take solace in Mackintosh Queen’s Cross and watch this real unforgettable masterpiece. Strewth! Director Ted Kotcheff Cast Donald Pleasence, Gary Bond, Chips Rafferty Australia 1971, 1h54m, 18 Thanks to Eureka!

Warsaw Uprising GFT | Thu 26 (18.00) & Fri 27 Feb (11.00) Constructed entirely from documentary footage shot by six propaganda cameramen in 1944, Warsaw Uprising allows the viewer to become an eyewitness to history. Black and white images have been colourised and actors give voice to dialogue that has been compiled by lip-reading. The experiences of cameramen and an American airman are used to provide a narrative structure as we watch Poles huddled in air raid shelters, soldiers shaving, people dodging sniper fire and a no man’s land confab with a Nazi. The result feels as vivid and urgent as a news bulletin. Stranger Than Fiction Director Jan Komasa Cast Piotr Adamczyk, Miroslaw Baka, Jeff Burrell Poland 2014, 1h27m, Polish/English with subtitles, N/C 12+ Thanks to Warsaw Uprising Museum

However, he finds himself at the mercy of prison life whilst his family are left to fend for themselves. When he is finally released he is forced to pick up the pieces of his life and face the reality of his situation. A wrenching story about how spending time in prison affects both those inside and outside of the walls, this unique production mixed professional and non-professional actors, some of whom were serving time and have used acting as a road to rehabilitation. World Premiere Cinema City Director David Hayman Jr, Moe Abutoq Cast Robert Johnstone, Brian McCardie, David Hayman UK 2014, 53m, N/C 15+ Thanks to Shooters Films

When Animals Dream (Når dyrene drømmer)

AUDIENCE AWARD

GFT | Sat 21 (20.45) & Sun 22 Feb (11.00) More Let the Right One In than An American Werewolf in London, When Animals Dream is a soulful horror story that unfolds beneath glowering skies. On the west coast of Denmark, sixteen-year-old Marie (Sonia Suhl) has begun to notice some unusual changes in her body. What is the strange birthmark on her chest? Why is hair sprouting from places where it has no business to grow? What is the real reason her silent mother is confined to a wheelchair? A brooding atmosphere and a welcome sense of restraint help locate the heartbreak in the horror before all hell is let loose. Pioneer Director Jonas Alexander Arnby Cast Sonia Suhl, Lars Mikkelsen, Jakob Oftebro Denmark 2014, 1h24m, Danish with subtitles, N/C 15+ Thanks to Altitude Film Distribution

White Bird in a Blizzard GFT | Thu 19 Feb (20.20) / Grosvenor | Fri 20 Feb (15.00) Gregg Araki’s adaptation of the Laura Kasischke novel has all the dreamy, emotional intensity and visual flair we have come to expect from the director of Mysterious Skin and Kaboom. In 1988, Eve (Eva Green) disappears, leaving a family shattered by her loss. Teenage daughter Kat (Shailene Woodley) faces a coming of age marked by a haunting confrontation with love, death and the hidden lives of her parents. Rising star Shailene Woodley (The Descendants, The Fault in our Stars) gives a powerful central performance in a tale that unfolds to a terrific 1980s soundtrack featuring the Cocteau Twins, The Cure and Depeche Mode. Gala Director Gregg Araki Cast Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni France/USA 2014, 1h31m, N/C 15+ Thanks to Altitude Film Distribution

White God (Fehér Isten) GFT | Sun 22 (17.45) & Mon 23 Feb (15.45) Every dog has his day. When thirteen-year-old Lili (Zsófia Psotta) is obliged to spend three months with her father, she assumes dad will also take her devoted dog Hagen. Instead, he callously leaves the dog at the side of the road. Hagen then embarks on an incredible journey, gathering the support of fellow mongrels and finally reaching breaking point. One of the discoveries at Cannes, White God is an ambitious, strikingly original political allegory in which Lassie meets Sam Fuller. Filled with clever ideas and memorable images. Unleash the hounds. Window on the World Director Kornél Mundruczó Cast Zsófia Psotta, Sándor Zsótér, Lili Horváth Hungary/Germany/Sweden 2014, 1h57m, Hungarian with subtitles, N/C 15+ Thanks to Metrodome

Why Be Good? GFT | Tue 24 (18.00) & Wed 25 Feb (13.30) Colleen Moore was one of the biggest Hollywood stars of the silent era. An impish embodiment of the free-spirited, fun-loving flapper, Moore earned $12,500 a week at the height of her fame. Few of her silent films have survived until now. Reuniting the mute picture with the original Vitaphone disc soundtrack, Why Be Good? restores Moore to all her screen glory in a rollicking romantic comedy. Moore’s sales girl Pert Kelly is the kind of jazz baby you want on your arm for a night on the town but is she good enough for boss’s son Neil Hamilton (the future Commissioner Gordon)? Find out in this sparkling Roaring Twenties romp. CineMasters Director William A Seiter Cast Colleen Moore, Neil Hamilton, Bodil Rosing USA 1929, 1h28m, PG Thanks to Park Circus, Film restored by Warner Brothers at Ritrovato Laboratory

Wild Tales (Relatos salvajes) GFT | Fri 20 Feb (18.00) / Grosvenor | Sat 21 Feb (18.45) We are all mad as hell at the world but some of us aren’t prepared to take it any more. Damían Szifrón’s zesty black comedy weaves together six short tales of individuals on the verge of a complete meltdown. Frustrated by petty bureaucracy, incensed by a cheating husband, emboldened by extreme road rage or sickened by a desperately unfair society, various individuals decide to have their revenge in the most public, aggressive and satisfying way possible. A comic compendium that has struck a chord with audiences around the world, this is also a stinging assault on the corrupt soul of a country in crisis. Pioneer Director Damián Szifrón Cast Ricardo Darín, Oscar Martínez, Rita Cortese Argentina/Spain 2014, 2h2m, Spanish with subtitles, 15 Thanks to Curzon World

William McIlvanney: Living with Words GFT | Mon 23 Feb (18.30) Known as the ‘Godfather of Tartan Noir’, William McIlvanney has enjoyed a career resurgence in recent years. Landmark novels like Laidlaw have returned to print and earned him a new generation of admirers whilst Docherty was recently voted one of the top ten Scottish novels of all time. Living with Words, produced by Gill Parry, offers an intimate portrait of McIlvanney in his own words and those of family and colleagues, including his brother, celebrated sports writer Hugh McIlvanney. A welcome profile of a writer whose passionate sense of Scotland and socialist ideals have made him inspirational. We anticipate William McIlvanney will join us for the world premiere screening of this documentary. Cinema City Director Maurice O’Brien Cast William McIlvanney, Hugh McIlvanney, David Hayman, Ian Rankin UK 2015, 30m, N/C 10+ Thanks to CONNECT Film Ltd

A Woman’s Face (En kvinnas ansikte) GFT | Thu 19 Feb (10.30)

Festival for a Fiver

Long before Hollywood came to call, Ingrid Bergman was a major film star in her native Sweden. A Woman’s Face contains one of her best early performances and helped cement her growing international reputation. Badly disfigured by a fire, Anna (Bergman) has grown into a bitter, cynical young woman involved in a life of crime. One of her blackmail victims proves to be the wife of a renowned plastic surgeon who gives her an opportunity to change both physically and mentally. An intense, psychological drama that Hollywood remade with Joan Crawford; this is a rare opportunity to see the superior Bergman original. Here’s Looking at You, Kid Director Gustaf Molander Cast Ingrid Bergman, Tore Svennberg, Anders Henrikson Sweden 1938, 1h36m, Swedish with subtitles, N/C 10+ Thanks to Swedish Film Institute

The Wonders (Le meraviglie)

AUDIENCE AWARD

Grosvenor | Sun 22 (20.30) / GFT | Mon 23 Feb (13.00) Alice Rohrwacher’s prize-winning follow-up to her striking debut feature Corpo celeste offers an enchanting portrait of a girl caught in the moment between adolescence and independence. Gelsomina (Maria Alexandra Lungu) is the oldest daughter of former student revolutionaries who now make their home in the Tuscan countryside far from the creature comforts of the world. Bee-keeping sustains their precarious existence but their paradise is under threat, especially as Gelsomina grows to realise this is not the life she wants. A rich, resonant coming of age drama. Pioneer Director Alice Rohrwacher Cast Maria Alexandra Lungu, Alba Rohrwacher, Monica Bellucci Italy/Switzerland/Germany 2014, 1h50m, Italian/French/German with subtitles, N/C 12+ Thanks to Soda Pictures

The Woods GFT | Sat 28 Feb (16.00) In October 1997, a group of filmmakers ventured into the Maryland woods to produce a low budget independent horror movie. The Blair Witch Project would become a global phenomenon and began the ‘found footage’ genre that remains a potent force today. Now, for the first time, you can see how that record-breaking groundbreaker came into being. From never-before-seen recordings of pre-production meetings, audition tapes and test footage to the actual shooting and first preview screenings at the Sundance Film Festival, all the key personnel guide you through the discussions and decisions that minted a shock sensation classic. FrightFest Director Russell Gomm Cast Edward Sanchez, Daniel Myrick, Gregg Hale USA 2015, 1h24m, N/C 18+ Thanks to Aurora Pictures

Wyrmwood GFT | Fri 27 Feb (18.30) A post-apocalyptic zombie invasion, caused by a wayward comet, turns personal for an Oz mechanic when his sister is abducted by a sinister team of gas-masked soldiers for flesh-eating experiments by a mad scientist. An absolutely astonishing and brilliant feature bow from Australian brothers Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner, Wyrmwood is the deadpan bloodbath everybody is talking about. Sporting Mad Max-style designs, a glorious sense of humour, energetic execution, outrageous zombie lore and KC and the Sunshine Band, this super-fresh spin on a favourite genre is a raucous riot of black comedy, catastrophic carnage and over-the-top splatter. FrightFest Director Kiah Roache-Turner Cast Jay Gallagher, Bianca Bradey, Leon Burchill Australia 2014, 1h38m, N/C 18+ Thanks to StudioCanal

He has always been a handful for his loving mother Julie (Sally Hawkins). The rational purity of mathematics is the one thing that allows him to make sense of the world. Tutor Mr Humphreys (Rafe Spall) encourages him to try for a place in the British team at the International Mathematics Olympiad. A training trip to Taiwan is the beginning of an incredible journey as Nathan learns that there may be more to life than prime numbers. Understated, beautifully acted and completely wonderful.
