Welcome to Keynsham Film Works
We screen films to members and visitors on the first Thursday of the month from September to June at The Space – which is the new building above the library. Doors open at 7.15 for a 7.45 start. We can get quite busy and (so far) seats are on a first come first served basis, there’s no booking in advance it’s simply pay on the door (£5).
We’ve not had to turn people away yet but we’ve been very close and the numbers are rising so getting in early isn’t a bad idea.
We’ve set up a simple bar (run by us) that is only set to cover costs, any suggestions to improve the service greatly received! Hope to see you there and hope you enjoy the film!
Our next film is:
3rd May 2018
Based on the acclaimed book ‘History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier’, this film recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, in defamation cases, the burden of proof is on the accused. It was therefore up to Lipstadt (Rachel Weisz), astonished to find that people expect her to debate on equal terms with sinister deniers, to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.
