King’s Lynn Film Festival starts on Thursday

Movie buffs and cinema enthusiasts are in for a real treat as Lynn Film Festival starts on Thursday.

The annual event, run by Lynn Community Cinema Club, is being staged mostly at the Corn Exchange Cinema in Tuesday Market Place, with a host of films on offer spread over four days.

These include the chance to see family blockbusters like Elemental (PG) and The Greatest Showman (PG) on the big screen, while there are also international movies such as Mavka: The Forest Song (PG), a family animation which draws on Ukrainian mythology.

Classic or ground-breaking movies like Mean Streets (X) and Anatomy of a Fall (15) will also be on show, as well as arts films like Klimt and the Kiss (12A) and Stop Making Sense (15), the 1983 Talking Heads concert film by Jonathan Demme, director of The Silence of the Lambs.

There’s also the chance to see two movies tipped for Oscar nominations but not yet released in the UK – the Japanese film Monster (PG-13) and the French culinary romance The Taste of Things (cert TBC) starring Juliette Binoche.

As part of the film celebrations, Lynn Festival will be presenting an Alfred Hitchcock double-bill at St George’s Guildhall.
