For the upcoming Curiosity season, Film Feels talked to programmers all around the country about their plans.
This year, Film Feels are feeling CURIOUS and inviting their members to (re)connect with their wondrous, inquisitive selves: what makes you curious? Which strange films, peculiar filmmakers, weird genres or forgotten formats have piqued your curatorial interest? Enthuse and engage audiences through your love for the strange and the peculiar, with unexpected and intriguing programmes that will stimulate the mind and the senses.
Here is what some programmers have planned:
We asked Lola Mckinnon, Acting Programme Manager at Showroom Cinema, to tell us more about their upcoming season of family films and philosophy workshops as part of Film Feels Curious.
Isobel Harrop is Storyhouse‘s Cinema Assistant and their former Young Programmer. As part of Film Feels Curious, she has programmed their My Forgotten Favourites programme – a season of cult and kitsch films from the late 90s and early 00s. Ahead of the season kicking off on Saturday 25 June, we asked her to write about the inspiration behind the programme and the role that curiosity has played in the season’s curation, her personal cinema journey, and during the pandemic.
We asked three of the young programmers from Ffilm Ifanc to tell us about their experience of curating, marketing, and producing their Film Feels Curious event, A Curious Trip in Cinema.
We asked DocIreland‘s Apprentice Programmers to tell us more about their individual curiosity around film programming and about their Film Feels Curious Event: Doc Ireland Fringe: Treasures of the Archive.
