Please join Birds Eye View for a special screening of Jane Linfoot’s directorial debut The Incident at the inaugural edition of 6 of the Best Fest, a celebration of new films by six UK women filmmakers at the Mockingbird Cinema, Birmingham on the weekend of January 20-22…
The Incident stars Ruta Gedmintas (The Strain, A Street Cat Named Bob), Tom Hughes (Cemetery Junction, Victoria) and newcomer Tasha Connor. It tells the story of a successful young couple who see their comfortable lives disrupted and their relationship unravel when they each make a decision to ignore the plight of a troubled teenage girl.
BEV’s own Mia Bays says: “We are excited to be heading to Mockingbird Cinema in Birmingham, it’s a key location for great film programming, and their ‘6 of the Best Fest’ is a terrific initiative. The Incident is a film we released, so we are happy this gets a prime slot, and the other films – such as Light Years and Adult Life Skills – are films we admire enormously. We hope more cinemas take up this idea and screen some of the best female-led UK films of the year side-by-side.”
Other great films at 6 of the Best Fest include Prevenge – the directorial debut of Alice Lowe (Sightseers, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, Hot Fuzz) – The Levelling by Hope Dickson Leach, and Couple in a Hole starring Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Witch) and Paul Higgins (In the Loop, Utopia).
The festival is curated by Brendan O’Neill of Stickleback Cinema. Four of the screenings will include Q&A sessions with directors or producers: click through for the full schedule.
Tickets are just £7 or £30 for a great value full festival pass: book here.
