A late screening of Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock kicks off the Film Club showcase on Friday 21st June at 10.15pm. The following evening, film lovers will be able to watch John Shuttleworth’s Southern Softies, which will be screened twice, with the opportunity to see the legendary comic in the flesh at 8pm. The finale is the hard hitting film Imshuradj People Without A Country, which will be introduced by Tuareg film-maker, Akli Sh’kka with music by Mali supergroup, Tinariwen.
Beverley Film Society Chair, Nadia Chelbi, said:
“Beverley Film Society continues to support and add value to the Beverley Folk Festival for another year by screening films during the three day music festival. Our involvement in the Festival is a great opportunity for us to take part in an excellent event right on our doorstep.
“There are many great films, documentaries and feature films about musicians, bands and music in general for us to choose from. We work closely with colleagues from the Festival to put together a programme of relevant screenings for the event and bring music and film from around the world to the East Riding.”
Tickets for films are £4 and will be on sale at the Beverley Tourist Information Centre or call 01482 870751.
