1) THE WIND RISES - Opening Night Film
So the time is almost here.
Tomorrow night is the opening night screening of Miyazaki's The Wind Rises. His final film before retirement and a treat for anime fans of all ages!
2) When i Saw You
A beautifully sensitive story about a young Palestinian refugee boy who struggles to return home. This charming film breathes energetic new life into teh notion of the Palestinian right to return.
'Period Arabic pop, plus a vintage Cat Stevens number, add to the historical background - and back up the film’s argument that, over five decades, not much has changed for children like Tarek' Screen International
3) Wajma (An Afghan Love Story)
Filmmaker Barmak Akram depicts contemporary Afghani relationships as a conflict between tradition and modernity. - Hollywood Reporter
One of the more controversial films in the festival will leave you with a lot to discuss.
4) The Way Way Back
This coming of age comedy is a must see from the makers of the Decendents.
'Everything in this film about a 14-year-old dragged along on holiday with his mum's new boyfriend takes place in a woozy, nostalgic vacuum' ****Guardian
Stars Toni collette and Steve Carrell
