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:
6th February 2020
Director Sean Baker’s film is a poignant depiction of generational poverty and life on the margins of American society and has been described as capturing the timeless, magical innocence of childhood. It is set in Orlando, Florida at a budget hotel named ‘The Magic Castle’ and leads us through the lives of 6 year old feral, mischievous Moonee and her equally rebellious young mother Halley during one summer. Whilst Moonee and her friends immerse themselves in the fantasy of childhood Halley faces the harshness of reality to provide for her daughter. This is a challenging, thought provoking film with outstanding and breakout performances from the cast. Its beautiful cinematography
and lack of soundtrack create a documentary feel.
