The 9th Annual Cornwall Film Festival

There will be a short break from the Philip K. Dick marathon, what with the Hitchcock Director's Chair this weekend (if you haven't done so already, check it out here) and the Cornwall film festival next weekend.

Speaking of the festival, which starts on Friday, there are some great films and documentaries on offer which I'm really looking forward to. Here is a selection:
  • The Arbor tells the true story of Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar (writer of Rita, Sue and Bob Too!) who tragically died at the age of 29.
  • Another Year is Mike Leigh's new film, which shows the relationship of a couple nearing old age and their two friends.
  • Catfish is a documentary about the consequences of social networking.
  • Countdown to Zero is a documentary that takes a stark look at the history of the nuclear arms race and the threat of present-day nuclear war.
  • The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is the final part in the trilogy of Swedish film adaptations of Steig Larsson's novels.
  • Red Hill is a western-genre tale from Australia about the first day of a young police officer, an action-packed thriller shot on location in the outback.
  • Restrepo is a documentary that follows the men stationed at an outpost in Afghanistan's Korangal Valley, looking at daily life on the battlefield.
  • Skeletons is a dark British comedy about two 'mystic detectives' who literally exorcise skeletons from people's closets. more!

Not long to go now and I'm getting very excited. Be sure to visit my page at for reviews of all the films I get to see. And I'll also be tweeting throughout the weekend so follow me on Twitter.
