Film festival screening this weekend

Isle of Wight Film Festival 2013 guest judge, TV and film star George Mackay with prizewinning director of A Dream I had, Brian Harley.

THE Isle of Wight Film Festival is just two months away, and organisers are holding a special event to whet film fans' appetites.

The best films from last year's festival will be screened back-to-back at Ventnor Arts Club on Saturday night, where organisers will also reveal what's in store for this year's event.

Festival director Bruce Webb said: "This screening shows the truly international scope of the event, and in 2014 we’re adding another day to the festival so we can show more films, and therefore have more overseas guests.

"We’re also excited to announce a collaboration between Portsmouth Film Society with outdoor screenings, and the confirmation of the 1970's classic, shot on the Island and starring David Essex and Ringo Starr — That'll Be The Day."

Organisers are currently sifting through the entries for this year's festival, which will be held in August alongside Ventnor Fringe.

The programme for tomorrow's screening features comedies, dramas and documentaries from around the world, including Not Anymore: A Story of Revolution, Alles Super, A Dream I Had, A Cake For Mabel, Ma Foret and Echo.
