Purbeck Film Festival Open Air Cinema: Pride
The UK’s longest running rural and coastal film festival
1hr 59 mins
Pride commemorates the hitherto unremarked but nevertheless remarkable alliance between Welsh miners and London lesbians and gay men. It is an enjoyable, well-made, sometimes uplifting, movie set in a bleak period of British history. It is a political film, in the best sense: it’s about people joining together to take control of their own destinies, a theme which has a long history in UK cinema. It is well-scripted, beautifully directed, skillfully and enjoyably acted.
The movie is absolutely magical. Not to oversell it, but it’s a must-see. It’s funny but very moving, with a perfect blend of comedy and seriousness (because these were dark times, both for the miners and the gay community).
Gates open at 7.30pm and film screening at approximately 8.30pm. Please bring your own rugs or low backed seating. Picnics and wine welcome, wrap up warm and please bring a torch.
Event is weather dependent. In the event of inclement weather a decision will be made on the day about the screening and information will be posted on our wesbsite, social media and on the telephone enquiry line. Full refunds will be given in the event of cancellation for advance ticket bookings.
Ticket prices are £12.00 adults / £6.00 children. More details on website.
Purbeck Film Festival
Supported by the BFI and its South West Regional Hub the Purbeck Film Festival has, in its 24 years, continued to grow in terms of venues and audience numbers. Our primary aim is to provide a rich variety of cinematic experiences across a rural area which does not have easy access to foreign language, independent and classic films.
