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.
If you’d like to receive reminders of the next film via email please join the mailing list – we only send a quick email out on the Monday before the film with details and any relevant message (like snow warnings!).
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 January 2019
This animated fantasy drama film has no dialogue and has been described as a ‘luminous visual symphony’ which captures and conveys emotion without uttering a single word. It tells the story of a nameless man who is shipwrecked on a tropical island. The only sounds are of the water, wind and birds. His attempts to leave are thwarted by a giant red turtle who attacks and destroys the rafts he builds. Without explanation the turtle turns into a beautiful woman and the man falls in love with her. Recounting the milestones and challenges in the life of a human being, this sensitive and thoughtful film has been likened to having the ‘proportion of a fable but the scope of a mythical lifetime’.
