A Season of Silkscreen

For lovers of the best in world cinema the Silkscreen Film Society is beginning upon a new season. With the next great film I’ve Loved You So Long (picture courtesy of showing on Wednesday 16 September (French with subtitles).
Silkscreen, for the uninitiated, is a non-profit making society currently with around 330 members. The films are shown at the Heritage Centre in Roe Street (the home of Cinemac) and can be seen on Wednesdays (at approximately two-week intervals) with showings at 5.30 and 8pm.
The season, running through to March 2010, includes the brilliant comedy-noir In Bruges, starring Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell; Caramel, a tender, light-hearted look at what life is like for working women living in Lebanon today. (France/Beirut with subtitles); and the outrageously offbeat comedy hit Juno.
Details of the full programme are available on the website. Including information on the talk by Alan Sennett, on classic French cinema from the 1930s to the 1960s. Wednesday 27 January. Sennett is a lecturer in film, politics and history.
The price of the event is included within the membership fee and costs £4 to visitors. Membership subscriptions for 2009/10 are £24, an average only £2 per film and a membership form can be found on line.
