ID Fest – Derby’s first film festival 25th-28th November
The mighty talents at my local arthouse cinema, QUAD, have launched Derby’s first ever Film Festival, which takes place 25th – 28th November.
Called ID Fest, it’s a celebration of all things British on film, with discussions, interviews and screenings of a whole raft of homegrown classics, from The Third Man to Wallace & Gromit. Speakers/guests include David Morrissey, Kwame Kwei-Armah and Control screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh.
DISCLAIMER: I’m involved, too, as I’ll be introducing one of my favourite British films, Children of Men, on Sunday 28th November!
The amazing thing is: passes to see everything are only £30 (or £25 for QUAD members and concessions). With around 30 films to choose from over the four days, that’s gotta be bargain of the year.
