Opening on 4 November with the English Premiere of Songs for Madagascar, attended by the filmmakers and special guests, Southampton Film Week follows with a further 9 film-focused days culminating on Sunday 13 November with the now traditional screening and awards finale. This festival of film showcases everything from BAFTA nominated shorts to the exciting work of young filmmakers across a number of Southampton venues.
Highlights for the week include:
Documentary Film Workshop @ Turner Sims, 5 Nov 10:30-12:30pm
Book your place here
Director Cesar Paes and Producer Marie-Clemence Paes (Songs For Madagascar) share the secrets of their award-winning documentary projects and offer advice and guidance to young documentary filmmakers who are invited to present extracts of their work.
City Eye Cinema @ The Stage Door, 6 Nov 8pm
Book free tickets here
The Stage Door becomes a local film haven on 6 November showing a collection of great short films – many of which will have a local connection and wherever possible we will be joined by the filmmakers to introduce and then Q&A following their film’s screening. It’s a great relaxed atmosphere and invaluable for filmmakers seeking audience response and feedback or a showcase opportunity for their film. If you have a film you are interested in showing contact City Eye with your details here. Films must be suitable for viewing by the general public.
Vintage Mobile Cinema @ Guildhall Square, 11 & 12 Nov 11am-6pm
Discover short films from artists and filmmakers, some taking themes from BAS8 some simply celebrating all that is wonderful about film – old and new! As part of Southampton Film Week, City Eye has teamed up with BAS8 Fringe to bring the beautiful Vintage Mobile Cinema to Southampton on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 November. One of seven units custom build for the government in the late 1960s to promote British industry, this is the only surviving example still on the road.
