Pre-Code Hollywood: Rules are Made to be Broken

If you want to see women centre-stage and expressing their own desires, or criminals so charming you’ll pray they get away with the loot, step this way… Co-curated by film writers and critics Pamela Hutchinson and Christina Newland, Cinema Rediscovered’s Pre-Code Hollywood: Rules are Made to be Broken touring package – launching at this year’s festival – is now available to book from Park Circus for cinemas from August.

With support from BFI awarding funds from National Lottery, and in collaboration with Park Circus and Warner Bros., the Pre-Code Hollywood package features five sparkling new remasters of some of Tinseltown’s most risqué films, all made before the 1930’s Hays Code was enforced. These Pre-Code classics tested the boundaries by breaking every single one of them.

Pre-Code Hollywood: Rules are Made to be Broken will be supported by a brand new season marketing suite of assets, pre-recorded introductions, competition prizes, a publicity campaign, plus Pitch Pot for venues to access support towards local marketing/PR campaigns and events. Note that our season curators will also be available for some in-person events (subject to their availability).

Get in touch to find out more about this season of some of the wittiest, wildest and most audaciously enjoyable movies Hollywood has ever made – including Jewel Robbery, Blonde Crazy, A Free Soul, Red-Headed Woman, and Baby Face.

Women’s Stories from the Global South (& To Whom They Belong)

In this Cinema Rediscovered on Tour package, available to book directly from the festival with the support of BFI awarding funds from National Lottery, curatorial collaborators Mosa Mpetha (Black Cinema Project, Hyde Park Picture House), Darragh Amelia and Jesse Gerard (Ajabu Ajabu) present five recently digitised or restored works from the Global South that are written by and about women:

Sambizanga (Angola), Maangamizi: The Ancient One (Tanzania), Door to the Sky (Morocco), De Cierta Manera (Cuba) and Araya (Venezuela).

Surrounding each film from this selection exists a uniquely challenging story of ownership and distribution, opening up discussion around the imbalance of power within film cultures perpetuated globally and locally — particularly imposed upon female storytellers and hindering open and inclusive access to their narratives.

Venues that book titles from this strand can access extra support towards local events and marketing thanks to BFI awarding funds from National Lottery.

FAN Members are also invited to Cinema Rediscovered ‘s industry day Reframing Sessions (20 July 11am – 6pm) which will explore the theatrical potential around repertory & archive programming, look at the dynamics of ownership that have historically limited access to African cinema as well as look at forthcoming slates from BFI, Park Circus, Studio Canal, MUBI and the ICO. Don’t forget that your local BFI Film Hub can offer bursaries to support festival costs.

Europe Made Hollywood: From Sunrise to High Noon

A Hollywood movie is the quintessential form of American cinema: entertainment with a side order of escapism where good triumphs over evil. However, like the country itself, this style of film was forged through various external influences.

Also launching at Cinema Rediscovered and already travelling to GFT (Glasgow), Home (Manchester) and IFI (Dublin), When Europe Made Hollywood: From Sunrise to High Noon provides a big screen exploration of these outside voices that created some of Hollywood’s most distinctive and enduring films, from directors F.W Murnau and Michael Curtiz and actresses Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo – to further giants of European cinema forced to escape the rise of fascism in the 1930s, including Billy Wilder and Fritz Lang.

All titles in the season are available to book via Park Circus, including Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, Shanghai Express, Queen Christina (35mm), Fury (35mm), Casablanca, Double Indemnity, and The Killers – plus a brand new 4K restoration of High Noon to mark its 60th anniversary this year.

You can also expect editorial from season curator Mark Cosgrove (Watershed and Cinema Rediscovered) and season partners Invisible Women.
