Exmouth Discovery Screens Film Festival
From Monday 24th February for three nights, residents of Exmouth can enjoy exclusive viewings of culturally diverse films at Exmouth Library. Organised by Libraries Unlimited, through its Evolve programme, the Discovery Screens Film Festival includes a selection of exceptional hand-picked movies, not usually shown at mainstream cinemas.
The three-night Exmouth Library Film Festival opens with selected works first shown at the Oska Bright Film Festival, an acclaimed international event celebrating learning disabled film makers from around the world creating a mix of animation, live action and documentary shorts. Audiences also have a chance to see footage, some unseen for decades, from the British Film Institute’s Britain on Film collection, beautifully portraying stories of over 100 years of British life. The Film Festival finishes with short films from Peccadillo Pictures, award winning UK film distributor of art house, gay and lesbian and world cinema titles.
