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:
7th March 2019
There have been a number of British films recently set on farms. We have selected this film for its quality and connection to the local Somerset countryside. The first feature film by renowned director of short films Dickson Leach, the Levelling is set in the aftermath of the disastrous floods of 2014. It explores the relationship of trainee vet Clover Cato ( Bridge of Thrones star Ellie Kendrick) and her father Aubrey (David Troughton). Cato has returned to the farm after the violent death of her brother, Harry. Her father has been forced to abandon the farmhouse and live in a caravan after the floods but is determined to keep farming. He enlists Cato’s help despite her inexperience and the clearly strained relations between them. In the background are constant reminders of Harry and his death both physical and through the presence of his best friend James (Jack Holden). Excellent script, direction, cinematography (Nanu Segal) and music (Hutch Demouilpied) capture the simplicity and beauty, but also the sometimes bleak and harsh realities, of rural life.
