Over 65 films showcasing the very best of cinema


Portrait Of A Lady On Fire (2019)

In French with English subtitles

Directed and Written by Céline Sciamma

Starring: Noémie Merlant, Adèle Haenel, Luàna Bajrami

On an isolated island in Brittany at the end of the eighteenth century, a female painter is obliged to paint a wedding portrait of a young woman.
There are some films so exquisite that any attempt to put them into words feels like an act of violence. Céline Sciamma’s is just such a film. It seems spun of gossamer, at once tensile and tenuous.

Purbeck Film Festival: Supported by the BFI and its South West Regional Hub the Purbeck Film Festival aims 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.
