We are delighted to have the UK's finest living film critic Derek Malcolm to launch the 30th Chichester International Film Festival. He was kind enough to send the following note, and will be present at the Gala screening of EIFFEL.
"What a great feast of cinema! As usual, Chichester is the most all-embracing Festival in England bar London. I must congratulate Roger Gibson, your veteran director, on the scope of this year's programme and especially the talks which go with the new films. Watch out for the Ukraine movies. They are full of energy and skill. Congratulations to all for their hard work. Festivals aren't easy to organise, so do support this one. It will be well worth it."
We will then close the Festival with a special preview of a brilliant new film - JUNIPER - starring Charlotte Rampling.
