The Nottingham International Film Festival is pleased to announce the line-up for this year’s second annual festival. Taking place over the weekend of October 6 - 8, this year’s event is being held at Showcase Cinema de Lux Nottingham and is set to see the festival grow in stature after a successful first year in 2016.
Film fans can expect a host of U.K. and International premieres including 'Lies We Tell' starring Gabriel Bryne and Harvey about a driver who must clean up his boss’s mess after he dies, Hollywood set thriller 'American Pets', which sees a young man’s life spiral into uncompromising amorality and the UK based Post War drama 'Bikini Blue', where a Polish husband and wife look to build a new life in Britain, only for his past to come back to haunt them.
The opening night film is the Bryn Higgins (Black Mirror) directed 'Access All Areas', which tells the story of a group of teens who escape their dysfunctional family life by heading off to an island music festival. Feature highlights over the long weekend include Game of Thrones star John Bradley-West portraying a member of a young rock band who make a Faustian pact with a stranger (Malcolm Mcdowell) in 'American Satan', Canadian film 'A Pact Among Angels', telling the story of the kidnapping of a solitary middle-aged man by two teenage brothers and closing film of festival 'Rage', which sees a man’s world collapse during a solitary and eventual not so routine nightly run through a European city centre.
Also screening back at Showcase Cinema de Lux Nottingham is the award winning 'One Note At A Time', which follows the musicians who returned to New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, and 'Fruition' about world renowned snowboarder Nicolas Mueller and his search for self-realisation.
Rounding off this year’s lineup is a host of short and experimental films that include the Alexandra Roach starring and BAFTA nominated 'Pregnant Pause, Panthers' - a documentary about Nottingham’s very own ice hockey team.
