Dir. Jordan Vogt-Roberts (US 2013, 95mins, 15) An instant classic. A note-perfect funny script that perfectly captures the feel of restless youth idling away a summer as the three teenagers attempt to free themselves of their parents, build a house in the wilderness, and live off the land.
Dir. Francis Lawrence (US 2013, 146mins, 12) Jennifer Lawrence is terrific as the haunted and conflicted heroine in this dark, gritty, exciting - and even better than the first film - sequel with amazing designs and costumes. It all builds to a thrilling climax.

Terrific.

Dir. David O Russell (US 2013, 129mins 15) Fundamentally about characters, this is a slick, smart and energetic shaggy dog caper set in the 1970s – killer soundtrack and great costumes – with an ingenious conman (Christian Bale), his long suffering wife (a brilliant Jennifer Lawrence) and his seductive British partner (Amy Adams) forced by the FBI to work in the world of the Mafia (Robert de Niro). Let’s boogie down.

Asghar Farhardi (France 2013, 130mins 15) After the brilliance of A Separation, Fardardi returns with the story of an Iranian in Paris who leaves his French wife and children for a new relationship in a beautifully written, assuredly directed and powerfully acted film that demonstrates his place among the great directors of today.
Best British Independent Films of the Year Saturday 24 May 7pm | Massala Lounge, Holmfirth | £6
Dir. Sean Ellis (UK 2013, 115mins 15) Metro Manila is an immaculately composed slow-burning crime thriller about an innocent corrupted by the crime riddled city of Manila. Ellis has directed an engrossing and emotionally tragic film, and looks like a genuine star of the future. Dirs. Christine Molloy, Joe Lowler (Ireland 2013, 95mins 15) Fine TV actor Aiden Gillan (Queer as Folk, Game of Thrones) gives a great performance in this implosive thriller as a man who flies to Singapore to tidy up the affairs of his dead nightclub owning brother. The strange pervading sense of mystery of a man lost in a foreign country is oddly compelling.
23rd - 30th May 2014
Dir. Haifaa al-Mansour (Saudi Arabia 2012, 98mins 12) Many people’s favourite film of the year is a deceptively simple tale of a 10 year-old girl living in the capital city Riyadh, who is determined to raise enough money to buy a bike – despite the fact that women are banned from riding bikes. This first feature film to be entirely shot in Saudi Arabia by a female director is a striking achievement and uplifting experience.

Dir. Elliot Goldner (UK 2013, 89mins 18) A found footage British horror yarn - from first-time director and colleague of Ben Wheatley - about Vatican investigators and paranormal activity in a country church that works, with genuine scares, and a few laughs along the way.

Dir. Enzo G. Castellari (Italy 1976, 96mins 18) Franco Nero stars as the half-breed who returns home from the Civil War on one man mission to save the town. Told almost as a Greek tragedy with flashbacks, this gritty and violent Spaghetti Western is one of the very best of the genre.
The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid
Dir. Philip Kaufman (US 1972, 91mins, 12) One of the most interesting of the 70s’ New Hollywood directors, Kaufman’s Civil War is still very much alive in this myth busting and off-beat tale of the Younger brothers (led by Cliff Robertson) and James brothers (led by a psychotic Robert Duvall), and their final bank raid.
Cutie and the Boxer
Saturday 24 May 7.30pm | Cinema Truck, Holmfirth | £4.50
Saturday 24 May 2pm | Brambles, Holmfirth | £4.50
Dir. Zachery Heinzerling (US 2013, 82mins 12) This Oscar nominated documentary is real treat. A fascinatingly heartwarming and heartbreaking fly-on-the-wall and archive film of the chaotic 40 year-long marriage of two Japanese artists in New York that is both funny and a serious portrait of the artistic process. Highly recommended.
Dir. Noah Baumbach (US 2013, 86mins 15) Great performance by Greta Gerwig (who co-scripted with director Noah Baumbach) in this sharply observed and witty comic fable about Frances, a young dancer apartment hopping around New York, searching for meaning in her life. Shot in black and white, with conscious echoes of Woody Allen’s landmark film Manhattan. Hugely enjoyable.
Garden of Words
Dir. Makoto Shinkai (Japan 2013, 46mins 15) An aspiring shoemaker keeps coming across a mysterious woman in this truly stunning featurette of Japanese Anime at its very, very best.

Twenty Feet from Stardom Sunday 25 May 7.30pm | Southgate Theatre, Honley | £4.50
Dir. Morgan Neville (US 2013, 91mins 12) The untold and poignant story of the brilliant and largely anonymous backup singers behind some of music’s greatest hits over the past 50 years. Oscar winner for best documentary feature, this is an upbeat and rousing crowd pleaser.
Enough Said Dir. Lars Von Trier (Denmark 2013, 242mins 18) The world’s most controversial director has produced another film that will divide audiences but this darkly funny bold and extremely explicit film about a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saved her, is another must see.

Chandor (US 2013, 101mins 18) This commanding one-man show from Robert Redford as he struggles for survival against the cruel elements of an indifferent world in this lost-at-sea thriller, should have won him the Oscar. This fine example of pure movie making builds to a truly operatic grandeur.

Dir. Frederic Jardin (France 2012, 103mins 18) French crime thriller centred on a cop who turns into a relentless fighting machine after his son is kidnapped following a drug robbery gone wrong. A clever plot, adrenaline edged, this is brilliantly entertaining.

Miss Representation + Discussion 20th Tuesday 27 May 7.30 | Brambles, Holmfirth Adults £4.50 Under 18s £3.50
Dirs. Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Kimberlee Acquaro (US 2012, 89mins 12) The under-representation of women in areas of power and influence in the UK is criminal. This simple, entertaining documentary which challenges the lack of positive female role models in mainstream media – ‘You can’t be what you can’t see‘ - had a powerful effect in America and led to the setting up of educative campaign groups. Although American in focus, it has lessons for here and is a spur to conversation. double friend s bill!
Dir. Pierre Schoeller (France 2012, 115mins 15) A winner at Cannes, its bizarre opening sequence which stays long in the mind leads to an intimate and realistic drama framed by the two tragedies faced by a new Transport Minister in a complex and hostile environment. Strangely compelling.
Dir. Katell Quillevere (France 2013, 94mins 15) What looks like a gentle soap – the fantastic Sara Forestier as the truck-driver’s daughter initially appears weak and uninteresting – turns into a Film Noir with a devastating finale. An intelligent gem.

Dir. Andy Heathcote, Heike Bachelier (UK 2013, 98mins U) The surprise hit at the Sundance festival this documentary about the Sussex farmer who, fighting against the control of the supermarkets, decides to sell raw milk to save his farm is an absolute delight. Steve Hook has a remarkable relationship with his 55 cows – be prepared to shed tears.
Dir. Pier Paolo Passolini (Italy 1964, 134mins, 12) It took a gay, atheist Marxist to produce the one true classic film about Jesus Christ. Shot in black and white (beautifully remastered) in a straight-on documentary style in the country-side of southern Italy among its poorest communities, this is a powerful, passionate – and even for non-believers - devotional experience.
Tuesday 27 May 2pm | Cinema Truck, Holmfirth | £4.50
Tuesday 27 May 7.30pm | Cinema Truck, Holmfirth | £4.50
Dir. Margarethe von Trotta (Germany 2012, 113mins 12) A very fine, thoughtful, intelligent and absorbing, almost documentarystyle, drama about the German-American political theorist who covers the trial of Holocaust architect Adolf Eichmann in Israel in 1961, out of which she developed the highly controversial idea of the banality of evil.
Dir. Mikael Marcimain (Sweden 2013, 134mins 18) Nordic Noir - one of the most underrated and interesting films of last year. Shot in the style of Tinker Tailor (they share the same cinematographer), this explosive conspiracy thriller, based on real events in 1970s’ Sweden about underage prostitutes used by corrupt politicians, is a complex, understated and gripping view.

But is he? Marvellous and haunting with wonderful period detail.

Two young people in love are seemingly willing to sacrifice their developing relationship over the problem of conceiving a child.
Curry & Film Night
Jadoo: Kings of Curry
Dir. Felix Van Goeningen (Belgium 2013, 112mins 12A) Intensely moving portrait of the oddball relationship between a tattoo shop owner and a Bluesgrass banjo player.

Wednesday 28 May 7pm | Massala Lounge, Holmfirth | £12 Dir. Amit Gupta (UK 2013, 81mins 12) Delicious and funny British Independent food-related wedding comedy - based on the director’s own family restaurant history - pits two feuding brothers, who both run curry houses in Leicester, against each other.

curry mcult ovie
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas + Talk Wednesday 28 May 7.30pm | Gonzo Bar, Holmfirth | £4.50 Dir. Terry Gilliam (US 1998, 115mins 18) Johnny Depp stars as Hunter S. Thompson’s alter ego Raul Duke in this cult gonzo take on the reporter’s trip to Las Vegas, which turns into a chaotic descent into the psychedelic nightmare of the American dream. It is sometimes forgotten that Thompson was a very fine journalist. His legacy is considered, as is that of New Journalism and Gonzo, with clips from other Thompson related films and documentaries. Plus a chance to drink cheap tequila. Supported by the Gonzo Bar and Journalism and Media at the University of Huddersfield.
Plot for Peace Wednesday 28 May 7.30pm | Brambles, Holmfirth | £4.50 Dir. Carlos Agullo, Mandy Jacobson (South Africa 2013, 84mins 12) A really fascinating documentary about the till-now-secret story of the behind-the-scenes machinations leading to the fall of Apartheid in South Africa, and the role played by back-room fixers and the mysterious Frenchman who engineered Mandela’s release from prison.

Wednesday 28 May 7.30pm | Cinema Truck, Holmfirth | £4.50
Dir. Mario Tullio Giodana (Italy 2012, 129mins 12) Impressively staged fact-based conspiracy drama about the bombings in Milan in 1969 - initially blamed on the left but carried out by the extreme right as part of the Strategy of Tension – and the ensuing cover-up and death in custody of one of the accused and subsequently the investigating Commissioner.
Dir. Julian Polser (Austria 2013, 105mins 12) Austria’s submission to the Oscars is a bewitching, unsettling and mind-bending sci-fi parable based on a classic novel about a young woman in the Alps who is trapped by a mysterious invisible wall, forcing her into isolation and survival, that has echoes of a feminist Robinson Crusoe.
Thursday 29th May Barrie Russell’s live music soundtrack
The Adventures of Prince Achmed Thursday 29 May 7pm | Picturedrome, Holmfirth Adults: £4.50 Children FREE Dir. Lotte Reiniger, Karl Koch (Germany 1926, 67 mins PG) Earliest surviving feature length animated film. Painstakingly crafted by Reiniger, the cut out animated silhouettes bring to life the adventures of the young Achmed as he journeys through the exotic worlds of the Arabian Nights, encountering witches, demons and princesses. Newly restored, this is a unique and brilliant piece of cinema history which still captivates. Barrie Russell will lead a specially commissioned live soundtrack with local schoolchildren. Plus the short films from the Festival’s animation and film-making workshops for children and young people.
Thursday 29 May 7.30pm | Carlile Institute, Meltham | £4.50
Thursday 29 May 2pm | Cinema Truck, Holmfirth | £4.50
Dir. Sebatian Lelio (Chile 2013, 110mins 15) Chile’s entry to the Oscars is a funny and mysterious account of a woman of certain age who seeks love at social dances (70s music) for single people. Paulina Garcia gives an award-winning tour-de-force performance which is brilliant and ultimately uplifting.
Dir. Manuel von Sturler (Switzerland 2012, 90mins U) A beautiful documentary about the annual Transhumance – a 600km winter trek for 800 sheep, three donkeys, four dogs and the two shepherds, Pascal and Carole. Increasingly difficult as modern life encroaches on their trail, this is a wonderful pastoral hymn to freedom.

Thursday 29 May 7pm | Massala Lounge, Holmfirth | £6
Short Term 12
Dir.

Deep subjects but done with lightness of touch that makes it unmissable.
23rd - 30th May 2014
Safety Not Guaranteed
Dir. Colin Trevorrow (US 2012, 86mins 15) Three cynical Seattle journalists investigate the crazy claims of man who is seeking a partner for time travel. Wonderful beguiling charm in this perfect summer romantic comedy with a touch of sci-fi. Many people’s favourite film of the year.

Dir. James Cameron (US 1984, 107mins 15) A blazing cinematic sci-fi comic book B-movie classic in which a human looking cyborg is sent to assassinate a waitress… Dark, violent (and feminist?) and fun. Now a staple of popular culture, this is still Cameron’s best film. The template for the dystopian blockbusters that followed, it is introduced by Roger Christofides, Research Fellow at the University of Huddersfield.
Stuart Hall Project + Discussion Thursday 29 May 7.30 | Brambles, Holmfirth | £4.50 Dir. John Akomfrah (UK 2013, 103mins 12A) Hall, who died recently, was for many years Britain’s most influential cultural theorist, concerned with those groups of people excluded from centres of power through race, gender and class. This montage of existing footage with Hall’s own words and thoughts is a really interesting look at Britain over the past 60 years. Followed by a discussion led by Dr Max Farrar, Leeds Metropolitan University, whose work and interests overlap with those of Hall.
The Selfish Giant
In partnership with the LBT and introduced by Shaun Thomas who plays Swifty Thursday 29 May 7.30pm Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield | £6 (LBT) Dir. Clio Barnard (UK 2013, 91mins 15) Rightly acclaimed as perhaps the best British film of the year, this beautifully directed lyrical portrait of two rebellious boys in Bradford who sell scrap in Huddersfield has a lovely but stark script about friendship, poverty and desperation.
Tim’s Vermeer Thursday 29 May 2pm | Brambles, Holmfirth | £4.50 Dir. Shane F. Kelly (US 2013, 80mins U) A Texan inventor attempts to solve one of art’s great mysteries – how did Dutch Master Vermeer paint such detail? Explores the idea that he used optical technology. It sounds a dry affair but this is astonishing, entertaining and profound in equal measures. One of the year’s best documentaries.

A country girl and demon-fast typist is turned into a national champion by her new boss. Amusing and touching, and huge audience favourite. Dirs. Joel and Ethan Coen (US 2013, 105mins 15) Original, smart, funny and profoundly melancholic story of a struggling folk artist in New York’s Greenwich Village during the winter of 1961. Great performances from Oscar Issac and Carey Mulligan, this is the Coen brothers at their best – undeservedly overlooked at the Oscars.

Dir. Mathieu Kassovitz (France 2012, 136mins 15) Gritty and true story of a revolt and hostage-taking by separatists in the French colony of New Caledonia in 1988. In this tense and involving drama, the counter-terrorism expert tasked with rescuing the hostages finds his attempts to negotiate undermined by his political masters in Paris.

Dir. Mark Kendall (US 2012 72mins 12) A surprising recycling project between US and Guatemala, where old American school buses find a new life but with a dark side, as gangs demand money from drivers, many of whom end up murdered. Despite this, poetic and upbeat.
