Catch the best of British cinema with award-winning and award-nominated films screening from 2– 11 May at the Europe on Screen Film 2014! There will be three feature films and two documentary films screening during festival.
We’ll start the first week with PHILOMENA, winner of Best Adapted Screenplay at the BAFTA Award 2014. This film was also nominated in four categories at the Oscar 2014 and three Golden Globes nominations. This true story of one mother’s search for her lost son will be the opening film for Europe on Screen 2014 on May 2nd.
Next movie is THE ANGELS' SHARE, a comedy drama about violence, family and redemption through fatherhood and whisky tasting. This film won Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize.
We also brought two films for music lover and or documentary film enthusiast. The first film, JASON BECKER: NOT DEAD YET, is a documentary film that tells the story of a guitar legend who refuses to give up on his dream of being a musician. The second documentary film is MISSION TO LARS. This film tells a story about 40-year-old Tom, born with the fragile X syndrome, a form of autism and his journey to meet Lars Ulrich, the drummer of the heavy metal band, Metallica.
