Many of our 2018 films present artists, musicians or music lovers, there’s a photographer, a writer, a stage performer, folk who love to dance; there are the arts of climbing and of fencing, involving the

creative control of movement, mind and emotion.  And lets not forget film-writing and film-making are themselves highly imaginative pursuits too.

While we may not always understand the artist - what drives them to create works of art, or to pursue their craft in extremis, these films offer us some fascinating insights into their lives and their

imaginative worlds.

We have removed the individual film pages for our 2016 program in the interests of saving space and time maintaining them.  What we give you here is just a reminder of what we saw in 2016, together with how you rated the films.
