We launched the Surprise Film in the Festival in 2012, and continued this idea where you settle down for a film, not knowing what it will be...
Or you may never have heard of it before!
One year I found it difficult to find a suitable film with the expected reputation we had built over the years, so there was no surprise film. There was an outcry from fans that expected something!
So I have been hoisted by my own petard and now deliver something every year - well known or not!
Join in the fun and take the opportunity to gamble by booking in advance for hopefully a very worthwhile surprise!
EXTRA SURPRISE - UPDATED 25/8
We had hoped to welcome the director to introduce his film - a UK Premiere, but we have just been advised that he has been 'pinged' by the Covid App and must self-isolate. Without giving too much away, the director is German, and it is a drama based upon actual events
