BACK TO
Quarterly Classics: What makes a film a 'classic' - stars? director? awards? decades of affection? Bracknell Film Society aims to answer this question at least partially in a new regular three monthly slot. The 'FILM LISTINGS' web page will keep you appraised of what is coming next.

A complete BFS showing list from 1960 is available through
the 'HISTORY' ICON at the top of this page.

Links to our previous shows in 2017, 2018 and 2019
are also given at the foot of this page.

Cast: Cristian Ortega, Lorn Macdonald, Laura Fraser
Two teenage friends share one last experience of their love of rave culture in 1994 Scotland. A universal story of friendship, rebellion and the irresistible power of gathered youth. With strong language, this rollicking buddy movie has an exuberant, nihilistic Trainspotting-esque spirit.

In the late 18th century, artist Marianne is commissioned to paint a portrait of a young woman and finds herself inadvertently falling in love.

A one-armed stranger comes to a dusty little Arizona town possessing a terrible past the inhabitants want to keep secret. Bringing simmering, atmospheric suspense scaldingly to the boil, Sturges perfectly captures the edgy insecurities at the heart of all racism.
