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).
Full membership for the year is still £30, bring your cheques payable to Keynsham Film Works along on the night to speed the process of signing up, this gives you entry to all 10 films making it £3 per film. You can use pay online here using paypal if you prefer and save the paperwork 🙂
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!).
There’s a new page listing the films we couldn’t fit into next years season of 10 films here: Films to watch out for, have a browse next time you’re searching for something to watch.
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 October 2019
A rare opportunity to see a work by Tarkovsky, one of the all-time great directors of World cinema. He only made 7 feature films but was responsible for some of cinema’s greatest moments. In Ivan’s Childhood, Tarkovsky’s first feature, he is concerned with Russia during World War 2. The film is a coming of age story featuring 12 years old Ivan (Burlyaev) who delights in the natural world. His happy pre-war childhood is contrasted with his war-time experiences fighting as a scout for the Russian army. No battle scenes are depicted and the war is imagined through the eyes of the child. Described as “one of the most beautifully shot films in history”, it is a poetic and haunting film.
