2016 theme: journey into new

A number of this year’s films involve journeys in cars. The car is an intimate capsule into which we place ourselves – for a time we are isolated from the rest of the world. We are captive to the conversations of companions, or the streaming view from the window, or to the mysterious inner spaces of our minds.

 

Getting into a car opens up expectations and anticipatory feelings.  Is this a journey to an interview, a holiday, or just a trip to work or the shops?  Any journey may be the pathway to extraordinary experiences. Ultimately, after setting off, after the journeying,  we arrive – in one sense or another.  Of course, the journey is an analogy for much that we experience in our lives. And the viewing of a film is a journey brewed from the experiences and imagination of both the filmmaker and the viewer.

 

In our selection of films, we aim to take you on many captivating journeys - visual, aural, and thoroughly engaging, each in their unique way.  Let the journey begin.
