Second selection of 2024 films

Last month we released our first selection of films that will screen in our 2024 Programme, starting on Monday 19 February. We have now added to that post the full screening details of those films plus reviews and notes.

Today we are announcing details of another four great movies.

  • Our closing Night Film for 2024. All About Eve (1950) is a timeless story of fame and ambition elevated by a witty script and brilliant performances.  Plus a record 14 Academy Award nominations.
  • We’re screening another New Zealand Cinema classic. An Angel at My Table (1990) Jane Campion’s ambitious debut feature brings Janet Frame’s trilogy of vivid autobiographies to life.
  • And in the Korean Cinema series, we add the highly acclaimed Burning (2018), based on a short story by Haruki Murakami, and directed by Lee Chang-dong. It’s just the best Korean film ever according to our reviewer.
  • Cow (2021) is a likeable eccentric documentary from Andrea Arnold, which puts you deep in the company of an English Dairy Cow and the rest of her herd. It is the second cow film we have announced for 2024. The first was aptly titled… First Cow. The conjunction prompted Johnny Crawford to ask What do filmmakers see in the eyes of animals? and he reports on an intriguing number of diverse perspectives from some top directors. A ‘must-read’ to add to two ‘must-sees’.
